    When sending or spending money abroad you should always check the total cost of the exchange rate and fees offered by your bank or FX provider. Exchange rates for foreign transfers and currency exchange always contain a margin from the wholesale GBP/USD rate (see above) plus additional fixed or percentage fees, but these costs can be hard to calculate.

    The below comparison table makes it easy to calculate how much you are being charged for Transfers and Currency Exchange and the possible savings of using another FX provider.

    How to get Good GBP to USD 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.
