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

The EUR/GBP 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 EUR / GBP 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 EUR/GBP 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 EUR to GBP exchange rate

  1. Know the latest EUR/GBP 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 Euro and British Pound Sterling

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 EUR vs GBP, you should pay attention to both Euro and British Pound Sterling news and forecasts.

Euro (EUR) - Market news and forecasts

Between November and February, the euro was remarkably stable relative to the US dollar, against which it traded for the most part between $1.125 and $1.155. In the days leading up to this report, in March, the euro broke downwards to a 21-month low of $1.118.

Further to Brexit uncertainty, euro weakness followed March’s meeting of the ECB, at which the central bank said it will not raise interest rates until 2020 at the earliest as part of an effort to lift the eurozone economy out of this “period of continued weakness.”

ING analysts wrote in March that they expect the low-yielding euro to continue to depreciate against the dollar over the coming months. Danske Bank predicted a euro dip towards $1.1 before a rally over 3-6 months back into a $1.12-1.16 range.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

The Brexit debacle continues, as does above-average volatility in the British pound. Until now, the UK government’s inability to make any decisions has been to sterling’s advantage, since this casts doubt on the delivery of Brexit and/or makes a softer Brexit more likely.

Sterling’s uptrend is evident from recent peaks against the dollar, coming in at $1.322 on January-25, at $1.335 on February-27, and at $1.338 on March-13. Sterling had been as low as $1.237 in early January. It was at $1.32 at the time of this report.

Increasing the risk of a no-deal Brexit (potentially very bad for sterling) was the statement made on March-20 by EU Council President Donald Tusk, who said that the EU would agree to the Article 50 extension sought by the UK government only if British MPs first backed the current withdrawal agreement—the one that had twice been defeated by large parliamentary majorities.

Pound forecasts are futile given uncertainties over Brexit but estimates can be made for different outcomes. Currency analysts at HSBC said in February that sterling would be valued at levels near $1.10 in the event of no-deal, near $1.45 with a deal and at $1.55 if Brexit is cancelled.
