Comparing Foreign Exchange Providers

The total cost you are charged by your foreign exchange provider consists of the margin from the mid-rate offered plus any fixed or percentage fees. These margins and fees vary significantly for International Money Transfers, Travel Money and prepaid multi-currency Travel Card transactions.

The Exchange rate you are offered can also vary significantly depending on the transaction type (transfer, cash or card), currency pair and amount. The below table shows an example of total costs charged by FX specialists and banks for USD/TWD International Money Transfers. Costs are calculated against the current interbank mid-rate.

 
 

The below comparison table displays the margins and possible savings when you order travel money online with a currency specialist rather than in-person from banks and currency kiosks.

US Dollar and New Taiwan Dollar Forecasts

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

US Dollar (USD)

In early May the continuing coronavirus pandemic and an associated possible re-escalation in the US-China trade tensions has moved the market into safer currencies such as the USD and JPY.

Goldman Sachs and RBC Capital forecast a large drop for US dollar against Japanese Yen to continue with a USD/JPY rate of 95 in the near future.

The US dollar held its value in 2019 despite the US-China trade tensions, mainly because the greenback is still considered a safer currency to own than most others.

New Taiwan Dollar (TWD)

NAB told Bloomberg TV that it sees a recovery in Asian currencies in the 2nd half of 2020 if the coronavirus comes under control.

The benchmark Taiwan dollar exchange rate, USD/TWD, has done little over the past 8 months; it continues to range between 30.5 and 31. The Taiwan dollar is worth 6 percent less against the greenback than its 2018 high.

One major currency that TWD is doing well against is the Australian dollar. TWD struck a 10-year high against the Aussie in January (21.16 per AUD), and remains close to that level in early May.

Disappointing export data (March data showed exports falling year-on-year for the fifth consecutive month) is perhaps evidence of a global tech slowdown that could put pressure on Taiwan’s currency this year due to its sensitivity to corporate earnings (high earnings create substantial capital inflows into Taiwanese equities).

Forecast: ING said in late April that it was concerned that any below-forecast sales numbers in the smart phone industry could weigh on TWD. “As such,” ING said, “against the US dollar we've revised our [year-end] TWD forecast from 30.40 to 30.95.”


How to get Best USD to TWD Exchange Rates

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.
