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

10-December-18: UK politics was in a state of disarray in December and a no-deal Brexit was looking ever more likely. As a result, sterling struck a 20-month low against the dollar ($1.251) and a 3-1/2-month low against the euro (€1.1). Against each of its peers, sterling had been worth 17 percent more prior to the UK’s EU referendum in June 2016.

The Bank of England has predicted a shocking 25 percent loss in the pound’s value in the event of a “disorderly” no-deal Brexit, under which there will be serious border delays and a marked loss of confidence in Britain’s financial institutions.

In the more likely event of a milder, “disruptive” no-deal Brexit, under which goods face tariffs but flow somewhat easily, sterling still loses 15 percent, the BoE believes.

How likely is no-deal? It’s highly likely unless Prime Minister May achieves a time-limited backstop; British MPs will not accept much else. This will be difficult for May to achieve — EU negotiators have already said that their previous offer was the last and only offer — and little time remains, with Brexit scheduled for March-29.

Indian Rupee (INR) - Market news and forecasts

Like other emerging market currencies, the Indian rupee has been under significant pressure in 2018. It made an all-time low in October of 74.5 to the dollar and fell to a 4-1/2-year low versus the euro, which bought 86.15 rupees.

By the time of this report (November-21), the rupee had, though, recovered somewhat, reaching its strongest levels of the fourth quarter. Recoveries worth 5 and 6 percent against the dollar and euro respectively had USD/INR and EUR/INR trading at 70.92 and 80.974.

Among major problems for the rupee in 2018 has been the high price of oil, which raises India’s import bill substantially, but as luck would have it, the oil market has experienced a complete reversal in Q4. A $24 per barrel (30 percent) plunge in the oil price over 7 weeks is a blessing.

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

One analyst said in November that the rupee would likely end 2018 stronger at 68 per US dollar.
