    How to get a good USD to AUD 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 Australian dollar with US dollar, then it's good for the USD/AUD 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.

    Will the US dollar rise against the Australian 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.
