AUD/INR: How to get the best exchange rates

You can get good rates by simply picking the money transfer service with the best exchange rate and no fees.

However, if you really want the best AUD/INR exchange rates you can combine that with some other tricks.

The key is to ask yourself whether you can get better exchange rates by sending money now, or if you’ll get more value by waiting a while. This means making an exchange rate forecast, and looking at previous trends.

Let’s start by looking at how rates have changed so far in 2017, and then by looking at how you can forecast future changes.

AUD/INR historical exchange rate

Australian Dollar AUD to Indian Rupee INR exchange rate history

Rates based on data from exchangerates.org.uk

This graph shows how many Indian rupees 1 Australian dollar was worth throughout 2017 so far. At the highest point shown (15 February) 1AUD was worth 51.61 INR. At its lowest as of the time of writing (the start of June) 1AUD was worth 47.5 INR.

Let’s look at how much of a difference this would make if you were sending $1,000 to India.

15 February 20171 June 2017
Transfer amount (in AUD)$1,000$1,000
Exchange rate1 AUD = 51.61 INR1 AUD = 47.51
Amount received (in INR)51,61047,510

In this example, you would have sent an extra 4,100 INR to India by transferring in February instead of June.

This gives you an idea of how much they can change over time. Compare this to the exchange rates right now.

AUD/INR exchange rate forecast

This means predicting which way the exchange rates are likely to go. In other words, which currency will get stronger faster? Will either of them decrease in value?

Making a forecast means looking at economic factors for both countries, and what you can expect to happen for each.

  • When AUD is strong or INR is weak: This is a good time to transfer.
  • When AUD is weak or INR is strong: This is a bad time to transfer.

By staying on top of the news you can look out for events that will make either currency stronger or weaker.

There are too many factors to consider all of them, so you might want to just look at some of the most important ones. Three main factors to look at are:

  • Balance of trade
  • Inflation
  • Interest rates

These are good factors to look at because they make a big difference, and because it’s easy to stay on top of them and get hard numbers for each.

Balance of trade

This is the difference between how many foreign goods a country imports, and how much it exports.

  • More exports: This leads to a stronger currency
  • More imports: This leads to a weaker currency

If someone wants to buy Australian goods (Australian exports), then they’ll need to pay with Australian dollars. This increases the demand, and therefore the value of the currency.

Imports have the opposite effect. If Australians want to buy imports (other country’s exports) then they’ll need to exchange Australian dollars for the foreign currency. This increases the supply of AUD and therefore decreases its value.

As such, Australia’s imports and exports, with any country, affects the value of AUD, while India’s imports with any country affect the value of INR.

Naturally, imports and exports between Australia and India have a particularly big effect, because they make one country’s currency stronger, and the other country’s currency weaker at the same time.


Inflation specifically refers to how prices rise in a country. Higher prices mean each dollar buys you less than before, and is therefore weaker than before.

  • Low inflation: This leads to a stronger currency
  • High inflation: This leads to a weaker currency

This is a major factor because it has both direct and indirect effects on exchange rates.

  • Direct effects: Inflation directly determines how much each currency is worth, and how its value is changing over time.
  • Indirect effects: Foreign investors want to see lower inflation, because it means their money is safer in that country. A low inflation rate attracts more investors, which therefore increases currency demand, similar to balance of trade.

Interest rates

These are the same kinds of interest rates you see when you put your money in a savings account or take out a loan.

  • High interest rates: This leads to a stronger currency
  • Low interest rates: This leads to a weaker currency

The specific rates you should look at are the official Cash Rates set by each country, in this case Australia and India.

It indirectly affects exchange rates the same way inflation does. A higher interest rate attracts more foreign investors because they can earn more interest on their investments in that country. This increases the demand for that currency, and therefore increases its value.

How to make an AUD/INR forecast

These factors can tell you how a country’s currency is likely to perform in the future, and whether it will get stronger or weaker.

However, it’s important to remember that you want to look at these factors for both Australia and India, and then compare them side by side. This is because you specifically want to see the difference between Australia’s currency strength, and India’s currency strength.

What to look at

What to look for in the news

Keep an eye out for anything that could make a big difference, and be mindful of carry-on effects. For example, oil is one of India’s big exports, so falling oil prices mean less exports for India, which means weaker currency.

Meanwhile, iron ore is a big export for Australia.When China slowed down its manufacturing, this meant less demand for iron ore, which meant less exports for Australia, leading to a weaker Australian dollar.

You should also look for news that may affect investor confidence. Instability, political difficulties, corruption and other problems can all reduce investor confidence, which in turn leads to a weaker currency.

The different money transfer options

There are three main options when sending an international money transfer from Australia to India, each of which has its own pros and cons.

Bank transfers
  • Can be convenient
  • Higher fees than online money transfers
  • Poor exchange rates
  • Transfers can take several days to complete
Cash pickup transfers
  • Lets you send money almost-instantly
  • Can be collected as cash on the other end
  • Higher fees than online money transfers
  • Less favourable exchange rates than some online money transfers
Online money transfers
  • Low or no fees
  • You can find good exchange rates
  • Transfers can take several days to complete

Even if you transfer at a time when the AUD/INR exchange rate is at its highest, you can still be short-changed if you settle for a low rate.

Case study: bank vs money transfer provider vs cash pickup provider

Prakash has been living and working in Australia for the past six months, and wants to send $2,000 AUD to his parents in India to help them meet their financial obligations.

Prakash wants to make sure his parents receive as much money as possible, so he compares the three options.

BankCash transfer companyOnline transfer company
Exchange rate1 AUD = 49.433981 INR1 AUD = 50.365637 INR1 AUD = 50.56 INR
Transfer fee$22$23$3
Transfer methodBank transferCash pickupOnline transfer
Processing time2-5 days10 minutes2 days
Amount sent (in AUD)$2,000$2,000$2,000
Amount received (in INR)98,867.96100,731.28101,120

When you’re transferring larger amounts, even a small difference in exchange rates can make a major difference.

In this case the online transfer provider allows you to send 2,252.04 INR more than the bank and 388.72 INR more than the cash pickup provider. It also allows you to save $19 and $20 in fees compared to the bank and cash transfer company respectively.

3 tips for better AUD/INR exchange rates

Keep the following tips in mind and you might be able to get even more value for money out of your Australia to India money transfer:

Check out the current market rates first

The market rates are the “official” exchange rates at any given time. It’s updated constantly, so it’s a good first place to look at current rates.

You can then compare this to the exchange rate on offer from different transfer providers, and see which gets you the closest to the current market rate.

Send one big transfer rather than several smaller transfers

Some companies may offer higher exchange rates and lower fees when you send a large transfer with them, so you may be better off sending one big transfer rather than several smaller amounts.

Sometimes this might also be enough to let you take advantage of valuable tools like forward contracts or limit orders.

Consider forward contracts or limit orders

These can help you secure a better exchange rate where available.

  • Forward contracts: With these you pick a date in the future for your transfer to occur, and it will be done at current exchange rates. Forward contracts can be very useful if exchange rates are getting worse, but you still want to wait before sending money.
  • Limit orders: With these you pick an exchange rate, and then when they happen your transfer is made automatically. Limit orders can be useful if you’re looking for some of the best possible AUD/INR exchange rates, and are flexible about when you send the money.

Forward contracts and limit orders are generally not available for smaller transfers, and you will typically need to send large amounts all at once, such as tens of thousands of dollars, before you can use them.
