Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

Why can't I just get the same AUD/NZD market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

When you look up the current Australian dollar to New Zealand dollar exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.

AUD to NZD mid-rate on google search

Getting a great AUD to NZD mid-market rate is all about timing, so unless you are able to wait, watch and time the market this is largely beyond your control. This rate will go up and down with varying amounts of volatility depending on the currency pair.

This mid-market rate is really only a reference and is just the starting point for calculating the actual rate you will get for your transaction, luckily we can also use this same rate to determine how good a deal a rate that a provider offers you actually is.

You can use the below AUD to NZD calculator to convert currency amounts using the latest mid-market exchange rates. Then choose your transaction type for specific Australian dollar cross rates and reviews of leading foreign exchange providers versus the Banks.


3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Australian dollar and New Zealand dollar

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency is always determined quoted in comparison to another currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the AUD vs NZD, you should pay attention to both Australian dollar and New Zealand dollar news and forecasts.

Australian dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

The Australian dollar took a hit in February and March, during which it gave up 4% of its value against the US dollar, and it continues to struggle in April.

In the third week of April, a rather dovish set of RBA meeting minutes eliminated gains made during a modest recovery period earlier in the month and the Aussie was once again in the mid-0.76s versus USD – it had been as high as 0.813 in January – and was close to long-term lows against the euro, in the low 0.62s.

Over the medium term, the Australian dollar is likely to receive support from commodities, which will continue to rally according to a PIMCO analyst. Speaking in April, the analyst said that commodities “would shine” given the transition to an environment in which low and stable inflation is preferable.

Any support lent by commodities will, however, be offset by a central bank that sees little reason for a near-term increase in interest rates and by uncertainties surrounding a potential US-China trade war. Trade tensions were at least eased when at the Boao Forum in April, Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke of the need to ease tariffs and further open up China’s economy.

In March, the median estimate of analysts polled by Reuters had AUD/USD at 0.78 at year-end.

New Zealand dollar (NZD) - Market news and forecasts

The New Zealand dollar gained handsomely against the Australian dollar between October and mid-April, strengthening by 7% to fetch 0.95 AUD, although the kiwi remains within the central portion of its 2014-2018 trading range against AUD.

Against the US dollar, the New Zealand dollar had rallied at the time of this report to 0.738 and continues to climb steadily towards the highs of its current cycle, roughly between 0.745 and 0.755.

In April, analysts at Saxo Bank questioned whether NZD had the legs to threaten cycle highs given likely unfavourable changes to the NZ-US interest rate differential. US benchmark interest rates have already risen to match New Zealand’s and are expected to overtake them this year. While further US hikes are expected in 2018, no rate hike in New Zealand is expected until mid-2019. Accounting and consulting firm PwC described the NZ-US differential in April as a “massive change in market conditions” that offered a “disincentive to invest in the New Zealand dollar.”

Other threats to the New Zealand dollar include the potential for a US-China trade war, which would threaten global trade and consequently weigh on growth-sensitive currencies like NZD. The kiwi got a boost in the second week of April after Chinese Premier Xi Jinping declined from speaking harshly on Washington’s trade policies at the Boao Forum (“Asia’s Davos”).
