How to get the best AUD to HKD exchange rate

These tips can help you find the best exchange rate for when you transfer your Australian dollars into Hong Kong dollars:

  • Monitor the mid-market exchange rate. By tracking the mid-market exchange rate (the rate at which banks buy and sell currency from one another) you can see if the rate a transfer provider offers is a good deal.
  • Place a forward contract. Forward contracts provide protection against a fall in the exchange rate by allowing you to buy a rate now for a future transaction.
  • Place a limit order. Limit orders are flexible transfer tools that allow you to get the exchange rate you want. Simply nominate your desired rate and the transfer provider will automatically send your funds when that rate becomes available.
  • Look for fee-free thresholds. Many online transfer companies waive their fees on large transfers.
  • Try and consolidate your transfers. As fees apply per transaction, you can save money by sending one large transfer instead of several smaller ones.
  • Make sure you’re quoted the correct rate. When comparing costs among transfer providers, make sure any rate you’re quoted is the rate you’ll receive for your transfer. Some providers can suck you in by using the mid-market rate (which you won’t receive) in their online transfer calculators.
  • Compare your options. Although it may be more convenient to send money through your bank, it often offers a much less competitive rate than a money transfer specialist. Compare the fees and exchange rates using our table to find the best transfer service for you.

You may have noticed the actual exchange rate differs from the rate you get once you've exchanged the money.

For example, say today's quoted exchange rate is $1 to HKD$5.72. You go to an ATM in Kowloon and withdraw money using your Australian bank card. On the receipt, you see the exchange rate differs from the rate you see online. It's $1 to HKD$5.3827, meaning you're losing more money in the exchange than the first rate. There's also the bank's fee added on at the end, resulting in a smaller amount of HKD for you.

This is referred to as the "spread" or "margin" – the difference between the mid-market rate you see on Google or XE, and what you actually get when you transfer money. Some providers offer lower fees but weaker exchange rates, while others charge no fees but profit from the margin between its rate and the mid-market rate. It's important to keep an eye on both when deciding how to transfer your money.

Tips on how to save on currency exchange fees


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

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 Hong Kong will help you gauge the strength and performance of each country’s economy.

Monitoring political developments can help; new governments could have new economic policies, while political unrest can devalue a currency. Reviewing the history of how AUD trades with HKD can also reveal patterns.

What's the best way to send money to Hong Kong?

There are three main options to choose from, depending on what you're after. For a more detailed view, check out our guide on sending money from Australia to Hong Kong.

Online money transfer

Pros

  • Lower or no fees.
  • Offer better exchange rates closer to the mid-market rate.

Cons

  • Transfers can take a few days to complete.
  • No face-to-face service.

For you if:

You want a more competitive exchange rate and lower fees than a bank transfer. Providers also offer more flexible maximum and minimum transfer limits.

Not for you if:

You want an immediate transfer and don't want to wait to be verified. In that case, consider a transfer through your bank or to a cash pick-up location.

Cash pick-up

Pros

  • Can be collected as cash on the other end.

Cons

  • High transfer fees.
  • Less favourable exchange rates.

For you if:

You need the money to be transferred immediately, such as in an emergency. It can also be helpful if the person you're sending to doesn't have a bank account or mobile wallet.

Not for you if:

You have the option to find a better rate with a money transfer specialist or if your recipient doesn't have access to one of the cash pick-up locations.

Bank transfer

Pros

  • Convenience and familiarity.
  • Has physical branches with customer service.

Cons

  • Higher fees than online money transfers specialists.
  • Poor exchange rates.
  • Transfers can take several days to complete.

For you if:

You want the convenience of sending money from your existing bank account, without having to register and be verified by a specialised money transfer service. Your bank can usually also help set up regular transfers.

Not for you if:

You want a more competitive exchange rate and fewer fees.
