Indonesian Rupiah (IDR)

IDR is up over 5% against the US dollar for 2020 (in August) and is gaining favour from bank commentators such as HSBC due to the attraction of the carry trade - the ability to earn higher interest when holding IDR versus other major currencies.

Migrant workers from Asia’s developing countries, such as Indonesia, have been sending home record amounts of money in recent months, defying pandemic expectations and propping up home economies at a critical time.

However, it appears workers are just sending money home in advance of their own return due to a bleak job market, particularly in the Middle East.

How to get Good GBP to IDR Exchange Rates

There are two important ways to save on Foreign Exchange, the first is minimising unnecessary or excessive costs and fees, and the other is to transact when the exchange rate is in your favour.

Reduce Excessive costs and fees

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.
