What Is The Exchange Rate Today?
Interbank And Live Exchange Rates.
Foreign exchange rates are always on the move, so it's wise to check out the charts before you make your payment. Interbank rates, also commonly referred to as market rates, are the official live conversion rates for a given currency pair. The interbank rate is the constantly fluctuating price at which banks trade currencies with each other. Unfortunately for consumers, most banks charge up to a 5% margin on the interbank rate when they send your money overseas, which could cost you hundreds depending on the size of your transfer. At OFX, our margins are substantially less, so the more you use our service the more you save.

Types of Exchange Rates.
There are 3 major types of exchange rates systems which governments employ to determine the market value of their currencies.
Floating exchange rates. Most major and relatively stable currencies employ a floating exchange rate (or fluctuating exchange rate), which are determined by the forces of supply and demand. The value of the currency is determined by market factors including interest rates, consumer and inflation data, political climate and fluctuations in the value of critical exports. Currencies which use a floating exchange rate regime include the USD, GBP and EUR amongst others. Managed float exchange rates. Also known as a 'pegged float', in this exchange rate system, the central bank will intervene in the market to ensure that the currency value stays within a predetermined band. Countries employing a managed float include Indonesia and Singapore. Fixed exchange rates. A fixed exchange rate regime ties the value of the currency to the fluctuations of another currency. The Hong Kong dollar and U.A.E. dirham are pegged to the U.S. dollar.
Why Do Different Companies Offer Different Exchange Rates?
The simple answer? Because they can. Banks know that 80% of consumers will use their bank to transfer money overseas.* They don't have to offer competitive rates, because many people are unaware of the margins they charge. (When informed of these charges 75% of consumers called these costs 'very high' or a 'bank rip-off'.^)
Similarly, retail currency exchange providers who have outlets at the airport know you're desperate to have the money before your trip. That's why their buy and sell rates are so different from each other. At OFX, we offer consistently good exchange rates and professional 24/7 service, so you can move your money when you want to.
