    Forecasts for CAD to NZD

    CADNZD chart

    According to recent exchange rate forecasts and currency market updates, FX analysts expect the CAD to NZD exchange rate to remain relatively stable in the near term. The Canadian dollar has been influenced by the risk-on and risk-off sentiment in financial markets, rather than the fundamental factors in the US and Canada. The continued decline in housing prices and potential negative wealth effects could put additional pressure on the Canadian dollar in 2023.

    How to get a good CAD to NZD exchange rate

    There are several ways to save on exchange rates when converting Canadian dollar to New Zealand dollar:

    1. Shop around for the best CAD/NZD exchange rate: Exchange rates can vary significantly between different currency exchange providers, so it's important to compare rates from different sources before making a conversion.
    2. Timing is important: Keep an eye on the CAD/NZD rate on currency markets, as exchange rates can fluctuate frequently. Try to make your transactions when the exchange rate is in your favor. You can do this easily with our BER Smart Rate Tracker.
    3. Use a credit/debit or travel card that doesn't charge foreign transaction fees: Some credit cards charge additional fees for transactions made in a foreign currency, so it's important to check with your card issuer to see if they charge these fees and what their exchange rate is.
    4. Use a multi-currency account: Having a multi-currency account allows you to hold and transfer money in both CAD and NZD at close to the interbank rate. It also allows you to make payments or withdrawals in the local currency while avoiding high conversion fees.
    5. Buy currency in advance: If you know that you will need foreign currency in the future, consider buying it in advance when the exchange rate is favorable.

    The key is reducing excessive costs and fees

    Generally speaking, if you are buying New Zealand dollar with Canadian dollar, then it's better for the CAD/NZD 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.

    It's worth noting that while these tips can help you save on exchange rates, it's important to be aware that no single method is guaranteed to provide the best exchange rate in every situation, and it may require some research and comparison-shopping to find the best option for your specific needs.

    Will the Canadian dollar rise against the New Zealand 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.

    To help with this you can add CAD/NZD to your personalised BER Smart Rate Tracker to track and benefit from currency movements.
