CAD/INR - Rate Guide

Canadian Dollar to Indian Rupee exchange rates aren't all the same.

The total cost you are charged by your bank or foreign exchange provider consists of a margin from the interbank mid-rate plus fees. These margins and fees vary significantly for International Money Transfers and Travel Money transactions as shown below.

 

CAD/INR Exchange Rates and Providers Compared

This guide to the Canadian Dollar to Indian Rupee exchange rate with 90-day chart & alerts, historic rates, forecasts and CAD to INR comparison tables for foreign transfers and travel money rates and fees on offer by banks and foreign exchange providers. Calculate amounts and rate margins with the CAD/INR Calculator.

Looking for INR travel money? Then it is important to note that the Indian Rupee is a closed currency. Which means that it is more difficult (but not impossible) to purchase the currency before departure and may need to buy it upon arrival. For more information and a full list of closed currencies read our guide: What is a closed currency?

A good solution for closed currencies is to use a pre-paid travel card to avoid carrying large amounts of cash and also minimise ATM fees. Compare Travel Cards

CAD and INR in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the CAD vs INR, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

 

Canadian Dollar (CAD)

The Canadian dollar stormed ahead in the second half of June, rising to a 16-week high against the US dollar and to 8-month highs against the euro, pound, Australian and New Zealand dollars. Against the Aussie, a minimal additional increase would take CAD to a 9-year high.

Supporting the loonie was a 10 percent rise in the oil price (oil is among Canada’s most exported products but is volatile and can’t be relied upon), a large and welcome jump in inflation, and dovishness at major central banks of the world, including the Federal Reserve, ECB and RBA.

Any delay to Canadian ratification of the USMCA trade deal (already accepted by Mexico) is likely to depress sentiment on Canada’s currency.

Read more in the article CAD Forecasts.

 

Indian Rupee (INR)

The rupee is doing remarkably well in what is normally a seasonally weak time of year and despite a 35 percent rise in the oil price this year (oil is India's largest import).

In early May, by the narrowest of margins, the rupee reached a 16-month high against the Australian dollar (₹48.4), before falling back slightly. It rose towards long-term highs against the euro (₹77.3) and was flat on the year against the US dollar (₹69.2), although it was 8 percent higher against the greenback than it had been in October of last year.

Why can't I just get the CAD/INR market rate I see online or in the media?

The mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news. It is actually just the half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the CAD / INR was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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). Some providers such as Transferwise will quote you the mid-rate (or close to) and charge a separate percentage fee.

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