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.

How to get Best CAD 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.
