How to get Good USD to CHF 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.

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

Once you add a currency pair to your watchlist we then start automatically checking the exchange rate for any HIGH or LOW event or significant UP or DOWN moves over a range of daily periods only as far back as 90 days.
