The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) to Canadian Dollar (CAD) exchange rate has exhibited strength, with the NZD reaching 90-day highs near 0.8306, which is 2.5% above its three-month average of 0.8104. According to currency market updates, this performance comes amidst a stable trading range, with the NZD/CAD pair moving within a relatively tight 4.1% margin from 0.7979 to 0.8306. Major banks and financial institutions maintain a cautiously optimistic outlook for the NZD in 2024. FX analysts expect the Kiwi to rally, especially from the second quarter of 2024, as a forecasted decline in the USD, attributed to anticipated Federal Reserve easing, may provide tailwinds. Additionally, a potential rate cut by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand in the summer of 2024, combined with stricter inflation targeting, could lead to higher rates that favor the NZD, although it is not without risks such as persisting inflation, economic downturns, and volatile dairy prices.
There are several ways to save on exchange rates when converting New Zealand dollar to Canadian dollar:
Shop around for the best NZD/CAD 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.
Timing is important: Keep an eye on the NZD/CAD 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.
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.
Use a multi-currency account: Having a multi-currency account allows you to hold and transfer money in both NZD and CAD at close to the interbank rate. It also allows you to make payments or withdrawals in the local currency while avoiding high conversion fees.
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 Canadian dollar with New Zealand dollar, then it's better for the NZD/CAD 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.
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 New Zealand dollar rise against the Canadian dollar?
