Comparing Retail Exchange Rates

The total cost for 'Retail' exchange rates you receive from your bank or foreign exchange provider consists of the margin from the 'Wholesale' rate (interbank mid-rate) plus any fixed or percentage fees.

These margins and fees can vary significantly for International Money Transfers, Travel Money and prepaid multi-currency Travel Card transactions. Also the exchange rate margin will also vary depending on the currency pair and total amount.

Australian Dollar - US Dollar Forecasting

National Australia Bank (NAB) have revised upwards their Aussie dollar forecasts now expecting the AUD/USD rate at US80c by June 2022, up from their previous forecast of US75c.

For 2020, NAB sees the Australian dollar at US74c by year-end, up from a predicted US72c.

The bleak outlook in the US has added downward pressure on the world’s base currency and helped consolidate the Aussie dollars’ upturn. Although the Australian dollar has recently edged through the key 0.72 handle, a sustained move above this level has been hard to come by. Further uncertainty in the US could push the AUD through 0.72 US cents. August Currency Update

How to get Best AUD to USD Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

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 foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
