How to get the best AUD to EUR exchange rate

Keep these tips in mind to ensure that you find the best exchange rate on offer:

  • Monitor the mid-market rate. Use our AUD to EUR currency conversion calculator at the top of this page to check the current mid-market AUD/EUR rate. This will give you a better idea of whether or not a transfer provider is offering a good deal.
  • Make sure you're quoted the correct rate. Some transfer providers offer handy calculators to help you work out the cost of your transaction. Keep in mind that these often use the mid-market exchange rate instead of the rate provided to customers. To get an accurate idea of how much your transfer will cost, ask for a quote.
  • Use forward contracts and limit orders. Forward contracts allow you to lock in an exchange rate now for a future transaction, providing protection if rates look like they might drop. If you want to specify the exchange rate you want, go for a limit order instead. Your transfer will be automatically sent out when that rate becomes available.
  • Consolidate your transfers. Rather than sending several small transfers and paying a transaction fee each time, send one large transfer and pay only one fee. Some companies will even waive their fees on large transfers, while others may offer better exchange rates on big transactions.

The mid-market rate is the one you commonly see on XE or Google. It's the mid-point between the buy and sell rates of a currency, which means it's not the same as the rate you get when you go to transfer money overseas. For example, if a currency's buy rate is 2.5, and its sell rate is 2, then the mid-market rate is 2.25. It's used as the most accurate way to see what a currency is valued at.

How does this apply to you? It helps to know the mid-market rate when you're comparing money transfer services, as the rate they quote you will often have a margin added on for profit. The rates can vary from provider to provider, as can the fees. It's important to keep an eye on both when deciding how to transfer your money.

How can I predict the best time to exchange AUD for EUR?

While there's no guarantee when it comes to an exchange rate forecast, there are factors that can give you hints. Staying up to date with financial news, interest rate movements and import/export figures in both Australia and Europe will help you gauge the strength and performance of each currency.

Monitoring political developments can help; new governments could have new economic policies, while political unrest can devalue a currency. Reviewing the history of how the Australian dollar has traded with the euro can also reveal patterns.

What's the best way to send money to Europe?

The next step is finding the best transfer provider to handle your transaction. Depending on what you're after, there are three main options to choose from. For more, check out our guide on how to transfer money to Europe.

Online money transfer provider

Pros

  • Low fees.
  • Competitive exchange rates.
  • Can book rates for future transfers.

Cons

  • Transfer time varies.
  • Customer service only online or over the phone.

For you if:

You're after a cost-effective option and want to send money abroad on a regular basis.

Not for you if:

You need your money transfer to arrive immediately. In this case, consider a bank transfer or cash pick-up service to help you out.

Cash pick-up

Pros

  • Transfers money to Europe in minutes.
  • Can be picked up as cash.

Cons

  • High transfer fees.
  • Less competitive exchange rates.

For you if:

You're after an immediate money transfer, such as in the case of an emergency. Picking up in cash also means your recipient doesn't need to have a bank account or mobile wallet.

Not for you if:

You have the time to find a better exchange rate with an online money transfer specialist or if your recipient can't get to one of the cash pick-up locations.

Bank transfer

Pros

  • Convenient and familiar.
  • Has face-to-face customer service.

Cons

  • Higher fees.
  • Bigger margin on exchange rates.
  • Transfers can take several days to complete.

For you if:

You prefer the convenience of transferring money overseas from your existing bank account, without having to go through the registration process of a specialised money transfer service.

Not for you if:

You want a better exchange rate and fewer fees.
