Exchange rates are calculated based on the forex (foreign exchange) market, which is a worldwide market where people trade different currencies.
Exchange rates show how much one currency is worth compared to another. They constantly fluctuate due to factors such as supply and demand, world events, economic news, and decisions made by big banks.
Here’s a simple breakdown of some common travel currency exchange rate terms:
- Exchange rate: This is the price of one currency in terms of another. For example, when the exchange rate between US dollars (USD) and euros (EUR) is 1.10, it means 1 USD is worth 1.10 EUR.
- Base currency: The currency you’re starting with, or the one you want to exchange. For example, if you’re going from US dollars to euros, USD is the base currency.
- Quote currency: The currency you want to get after the exchange. In the above example, euros are the quote currency.
- Buy/sell rate: When you exchange money, there are two rates:
- The buy rate is how much the provider will charge you to buy the quote currency.
- The sell rate is how much the provider will give you if you sell the quote currency.
- The buy rate is usually higher than the sell rate.
- Tourist rate or holiday money rate: These are just different ways of saying sell rate.
- Spread: The difference between the buy and sell rates. This is how travel money providers make a profit and cover their costs.
- Commission: An extra fee some providers might charge when you exchange money. It could be a fixed amount or a percentage of the amount you’re exchanging. We don’t charge any commission.
Travel money exchange rates fluctuate because of changes in supply and demand for different currencies.
These changes happen due to economic factors, political events, market sentiment and actions taken by central banks.
Tourist money exchange rates differ from the market spot rate because of several different factors, including fees, operating costs, supply and demand, and risk.
There are many foreign currency providers in the UK, all offering a slightly different range of products and services. That much choice means that it’s possible to spend a huge amount of time trying to find the best exchange rates, only for it to make a very small amount of difference.
