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

The GBP/INR 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 / INR 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/INR midrate the better deal you are getting.

Currency news and forecasts for British Pound Sterling and Indian Rupee

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 INR, you should pay attention to both British Pound Sterling and Indian Rupee news and forecasts.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

20-February-19: Given Brexit uncertainties, 2018 wasn’t too bad of a year for the pound. Although it lost 7.5 percent of its value against the US dollar, it only lost 1.9 percent against the euro and gained nearly 3 percent against the Australian dollar.

In early 2019, the pound has been resilient, having gained several percent against most of the other G10 currencies despite UK politics being in a state of disarray and with all Brexit options still on the table. Sterling remains well down when compared with its recent history though: at the time of writing, against the US dollar it was 12 percent lower than levels prior to the UK’s EU referendum in June 2016.

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 US$1.10 in the event of no-deal, near US$1.45 with a deal and at US$1.55 should Article 50 be revoked and Brexit cancelled. GBP/USD was quoted at US$1.305 at the time of this report.

Indian Rupee (INR) - Market news and forecasts

6-January-2019: Like other emerging market currencies, the Indian rupee was under significant pressure in 2018, during which it made an all-time low of ₹74.5 to the dollar and fell to a 4-1/2-year low versus the euro, at ₹86.15.

Following a solid fourth quarter, the rupee had risen by early January 2019 to a 4-month high versus the dollar of ₹69.36 — appreciation worth 7 percent from October’s low — and had recovered similarly versus the euro, to ₹79.29.

Among major problems for the rupee last year was the high price of oil, which raised India’s import bill substantially, but as luck would have it, the oil market experienced a complete reversal in Q4. A $30 per barrel (40 percent) plunge in the oil price was a blessing.

Political uncertainty (never good for a currency’s valuation) is likely to emerge in 2019; expectations are for a tough electoral battle for current Indian prime minister Narendra Modi.

Fitch predicted in January a 2019 year-end exchange rate of ₹75 to the dollar on the basis of further current account deterioration and tighter financing conditions.
