Sending a LARGER foreign transfer? Shop-around with multiple providers: Get Quotes

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

The AUD/ZAR mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google or the News, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the AUD / ZAR was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market AUD/ZAR midrate the better deal you are getting.

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

The three things you need in order to get a good AUD to ZAR exchange rate

  1. Know the latest AUD/ZAR market mid-rate. The closer your final exchange rate is to this real market rate the better deal you are getting. You should also judge how the current rate compares to the historic rate over the past 10 years.
  2. Compare your Bank's transaction costs to several licensed FX providers, remember to compare the exchange rate margins as well as the various types of fees. We make that easy to do with our calculators for Foreign Transfers and Travel Money transactions.
  3. Review up-to-date Currency News and Forecasts for both the and currencies, if available.

Currency news and forecasts for Australian Dollar and South African Rand

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the AUD vs ZAR, you should pay attention to both Australian Dollar and South African Rand news and forecasts.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

17-January-19: The Australian dollar recovered strongly following a "flash crash" in early January which saw it briefly trade at a 10-year low of 67.4 US cents.

By the time of this report, AUD/USD was back at 72 cents and roughly in line with December’s median exchange rate. The Aussie was similarly strong against other major currencies following its mini crash.

Several months ago, most analysts agreed that the Aussie was heading higher in 2019, but things have changed. In recent months, investors have become increasingly certain that no increase to Australian interest rates will be seen until 2020; there is, in fact, now a 25 percent chance of an RBA cut, per derivatives pricing. Inaction on interest rates will force capital away from Australia and towards countries where rates are higher or are expected to increase.

One senior researcher at BNP Paribas said in January that the Australian dollar would “get absolutely crucified and could suffer a 25-30 percent [long-term] fall.”

In opposition to that view, at least relative to the US dollar, was a CIBC analyst, who said that at current levels the Aussie was “very undervalued” and was his “best bet” for 2019. The analyst’s view was based upon there being a positive resolution to the US-China trade spat. The Aussie could be worth as much as 78 US cents in the second half of 2019, the analyst said.

South African Rand (ZAR) - Market news and forecasts

18-January-19: 2018 was a grim year for the rand: it lost 14 percent of its value against the US dollar, lost nearly 10 percent against the euro, and lost 4.4 percent against the Australian dollar.

Though the rand has had a good start to 2019 (by January-18 it was up 2-3 percent against many major currencies), its outlook took a disappointing turn in January following a dovish meeting of the South African Reserve Bank.

At its meeting, the SARB pointed to significant improvements to the inflation outlook in South Africa, and indicated that this meant less of an incentive to raise interest rates. The SARB predicted only one further increase in rates between now and the end of 2021, down from a predicted three increases in November.

In addition, 2019’s general election will undoubtedly add uncertainty given the divisions within South Africa's ruling ANC party, and uncertainty usually leads to lower currency prices.

In mid-January, year-end forecasts offered by TradingEconomics.com signalled rand weakness worth nearly 10 percent from levels at the time of writing. USD/ZAR will end 2019 at 15.31, TE has said, and EUR/ZAR will end at 17.14.
