    The Japanese yen (JPY) continues to lose ground against the U.S. Dollar (USD). For reference, towards the end of April the USD/JPY hit 131 — a 20-Year Low for the yen.

    This fall may be due to improving US outlook for interest rates and investors are deserting the Japanese currency in search for better returns.

     JPY Outlook


    The pound hit a 3-Year LOW in mid May near 1.22 against the greenback (1 USD = 0.81 GBP) — on the bleak outlook for the UK economy and after the Federal Reserve started its long anticipated increase of interest rates.

    Also hanging over the head of the pound is the thread of a EU-UK trade war over Brexit.

    How to get a good GBP to JPY Exchange Rate

    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

    Generally speaking, if you are buying Japanese yen with Pound Sterling, then it's good for the GBP/JPY exchange rate to be higher.

    However working against you are the fees all foreign exchange providers charge for providing their service. These fees 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.

    You can also read our practical guide to getting the Best Deals for your Foreign Transfers and Travel Money to Japan.

     

    Will the Pound Sterling rise against the Japanese yen?

    It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.

    To help with this you can add GBP/JPY to your BestExchangeRates My Rates Watchlist to track and benefit from currency movements.
