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

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

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

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

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

Update 14-April: The pound hovered between US$1.30 and US$1.31 (in line with 3-month averages) after the EU granted the UK a Brexit extension until the end of October. No-deal risk is gone for now and anything is possible, including a new British prime minister, a general election and/or second referendum.

Experts at MUFG said in April that sterling would likely trade between US$1.30 and US$1.34 until more clarity emerged.

If an election is called, the pound could depreciate to US$1.24, a UBS analyst said, due to “heightened uncertainty” (the opposition Labour party is consistently ahead in the polls).

Goldman Sachs said in April that sterling was set for a “big finish” (higher) once the gridlock in the UK parliament ends and a deal is agreed and certainty found.

Earlier this year, currency analysts at HSBC estimated that the pound would be valued at levels near US$1.10 in the event of no-deal, near US$1.45 with a deal and at US$1.55 if Brexit is cancelled.

Euro (EUR) - Market news and forecasts

Against the dollar, the euro remains weak. At $1.12 in early April, the euro was barely above March’s 21-month low of $1.118. Against the pound, it traded at £0.86 (a level it never sank to in 2018), but it fared better against the Australian dollar, with EUR/AUD rates in line with 2018’s average, at A$1.578.

Euro weakness has been driven by Brexit uncertainties and has followed March’s meeting of the ECB, at which the central bank said it will not raise interest rates until 2020 as part of an effort to lift the eurozone economy out of this “period of continued [economic] weakness.”

Forecasts: ING analysts wrote in March that they expect the low-yielding euro to continue to depreciate against USD over the coming months; ANZ said it saw rates falling as low as $1.08 by mid-year; Danske Bank said the euro would trade between $1.12 and 1.16 at year-end.

For EUR/GBP, Nordea Research thinks a no-deal Brexit will put £0.95 in play, a Norway-type Brexit (“Norway plus”) or permanent customs union will lead to £0.81-0.83, and Theresa May’s deal should see £0.83-0.84.
