GBP and PLN in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the GBP vs PLN, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

British Pound Sterling (GBP)

Sterling has climbed more than 5 per cent in October since Boris Johnson announced a new Brexit agreement with Brussels that has reduced the possibility of the UK crashing out of the EU without a deal. Pound valuations will continue to fluctuate based on Brexit No-deal, Deal and Remain probabilities. Currency strategists predict that gains in the pound would remain limited for now while parties prepared their election campaigns.

The pound would be doing far worse if it weren't receiving some support from the Bank of England which, surprisingly, is the only major central bank still considering higher interest rates in 2019.

Earlier in the year the pound was the worst-performing major currency by some margin. It slipped in late June to multi-month lows against a number of important currencies, including the Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, euro, Canadian dollar and Swiss franc.

Polish Zloty (PLN)

No recent Polish Zloty market updates.

Why can't I just get the GBP/PLN market rate I see online or in the media?

The mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news. It is actually just the half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the GBP / PLN was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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). Some providers such as Transferwise will quote you the mid-rate (or close to) and charge a separate percentage fee.

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.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
