    GBP/USD change over periods to 26-Jan-2022

    The pound hit a 1-Year LOW in December of 1.32 against the greenback (1 USD = 0.72 GBP) but has recovered into 2022 to above 1.35.

    The outlook for the pound is very uncertain due to rising inflation, slowing growth and unemployment, the combination of which could create a nightmare scenario for the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee.

    * This table compares FX rates & fees of selected FX specialists and banks for GBP to USD International Money Transfers. Providers must be well established, reputable and regulated in the UK by the FCA for the provision of payment services. We DO NOT compare every provider in the market. We may receive referral fees if you choose one of these providers however this will not affect the savings, exchange rates or fees you are charged by the provider.
     

    Exchange rates available for foreign transfers and currency exchange always contain either a rate margin from the Latest GBP to USD Exchange Rate (shown above) or a transaction fee and often both!

    How to get a good GBP to USD 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

    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.

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

     

    Will the Pound Sterling rise against the US dollar?

    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/USD to your BestExchangeRates My Rates Watchlist to track and benefit from currency movements.

     

    Rate Tracker

     

    Rather than requiring you to set a target rate, our FX Alerts work differently.

    Once you add a currency pair for tracking in your watchlist we can select to be notified daily for any UP DOWN HIGH LOW alerts over a range of periods over the recent 90 days.
