Understand the mid-market exchange rate

As each provider can set their own exchange rates, you’ll need to research the rates beforehand. Bear in mind that some providers offer different rates based on the amount you want to exchange, or the branch you visit.

Check out a range of providers, and compare them to the mid-market exchange rate which you can find with a Google search, or using a currency converter.

The mid-market rate is the one which the bank or provider uses when buying and selling currencies on the global markets. However, this is not usually the rate that’s passed on to customers. Instead, it’s common to see a markup or margin - an extra fee - added to the customer rate. You may want to look for a provider with an exchange rate close to the mid-market exchange rate - and low, transparent fees - to get the best deal.

Exchange rates change all the time, so you’ll need to check out the offers available when you want to exchange currency.
