    Forecasts for NZD to WST


    Recent forecasts from FX analysts suggest a mixed outlook for the New Zealand dollar (NZD) against the Samoan Tala (WST). Following initial gains post-RBNZ, the NZD faced a significant downturn due to a volatile market sentiment. Despite expectations of a potential RBNZ rate hike and positive economic indicators, the NZD remains vulnerable to further losses if market sentiment remains bearish. The NZD has shown strength against the AUD and JPY but has remained flat against the GBP and Euro.

    How to get a good NZD to WST exchange rate

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

    1. Shop around for the best NZD/WST 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 NZD/WST 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 NZD and WST 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 Samoan tala with New Zealand dollar, then it's better for the NZD/WST 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 New Zealand dollar rise against the Samoan tala?

    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 NZD/WST to your personalised Rate Tracker to track and benefit from currency movements.
