One of the financial products offered by Scotiabank is wire transfers. Wire transfers are a secure and fast way to transfer funds between banks in different countries. With Scotiabank wire transfers, you can send money to over 100 countries in a variety of currencies.

When you get a quote for your Wire Transfer from Scotiabank on their website or in-app, you can also see the Scotiabank exchange rate, but it can be difficult to then calculate how much markup from the market rate you are being charged.

Our research shows that on average, Scotiabank profit margin for foreign exchange rates is somewhere between 3 - 8%, depending on the amount you're sending, where you're sending it to and which currency will be received.

While all banks in Canada charge this markup, the extra amount being charged is much higher than it would be with a global money transfer specialist.

Forecasts for CAD to ZAR


The CAD to ZAR exchange rate has shown stability recently, with the CAD trading around 14.13 ZAR, slightly above its 3-month average of 13.98. Despite the Canadian Dollar's struggles against the US Dollar attributed to market dynamics rather than fundamental economic factors in the US and Canada, the Loonie has been influenced by shifts in risk sentiment. On the other hand, the South African Rand has faced significant challenges, including allegations of supplying weapons to Russia, ongoing power blackouts, political instability, and high unemployment rates, leading to doubts about South Africa's investment potential and negatively impacting the Rand's value.

How to get a good CAD to ZAR exchange rate

There are several ways to save on exchange rates when converting Canadian dollar to South African rand:

  1. Shop around for the best CAD/ZAR 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/ZAR 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 ZAR 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 South African rand with Canadian dollar, then it's better for the CAD/ZAR 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 South African rand?

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.
