    Track Rate

    The Japanese yen continues to lose ground against the US dollar. For reference, with USD/JPY hitting 136 in July — a more than 20-Year Low for the yen.

    Yen weakness against the greenback stems from the interest rate differentials between Japan and the US. The market expects that the Fed Reserve will continue to hike rates aggressively, while the BOJ is committed to low interest rates.

    How to get a good USD to JPY 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 Japanese yen with US dollar, then it's good for the USD/JPY 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.
