US Dollar and Philippine Peso - Market News


When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the USD vs PHP, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.


US Dollar (USD)

Get more details in the article US Dollar Forecasts.


Philippine Peso (PHP)

In September 2020 the Philippine peso climbed to a three-year high against the US dollar. Migrant workers from Asia’s developing countries, such as the Philippines, have been sending home record amounts of money in recent months, defying pandemic expectations and propping up home economies at a critical time.

However, it appears workers are just sending money home in advance of their own return due to a bleak job market, particularly in the Middle East.

The Philippines government, expects almost 300,000 overseas Filipinos to come home this year, with potentially severe consequences as remittances make up about 10% of the economy.

How to get Good USD to PHP 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.
