How to get the best AUD to INR exchange rate

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

  • Keep an eye on the news. Staying up-to-date on any news or key events in India can help you predict what the exchange rate may do. There are a number of factors that can affect how a country's currency performs. For example, major political elections can impact either the AUD or INR.
  • Check the mid-market rate. This is today's exchange rate. You can check it using the currency converter tool above and compare it to the rate you're being quoted. This shows if you're getting good value for your money.
  • Double-check your final exchange rate. Money transfer providers can often show you the mid-market rate on their website calculator, rather than the actual rate available to customers. A quote can give you an accurate idea of the cost of your transaction, including any extra fees and the exchange rate they're offering.
  • Look into limit orders and forward contracts. A limit order allows you to set the exchange rate you want. When that rate is reached, your transfer will be sent. A forward contract lets you lock in today's exchange rate for a transfer that will happen in the future. This is useful for when you think exchange rates are likely to fall in the coming weeks or months.
  • 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 that the actual exchange rate differs from the rate you get once you've exchanged the money.

For example, say today's exchange rate is $1 to INR₹52.54. You go to an ATM in Chennai and withdraw money using your Australian bank card. On the receipt, you see that the exchange rate isn't the one you'd seen before. It's $1 to INR₹49.933. There's also the bank fee added on at the end, resulting in a smaller amount of rupees for you.

This is referred to as the "spread" – 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 on 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 INR?

Making a forecast means looking at economic factors for both countries and what you can expect to happen for each. The best time to transfer your money into rupees is when either the Australian dollar is strong or the Indian rupee is weak. It's impossible to predict how either will perform, but you can understand what could influence it.

While there are many factors to consider, these are three of the main ones to look at.

When looking at the news, keep these three factors in mind and look out for any carry-on effects. For example, oil is one of India’s big exports, so falling oil prices mean less exports for India, which means a 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. This led 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.

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

We can divide international money transfers into three main methods: through your bank, a cash pick-up service and a specialist money transfer provider. They each have pros and cons, as well as situations they're better suited for. For a more in-depth look, check out our guide on how to transfer money to India.

Online money transfer

Pros

  • Low or no fees.
  • More competitive exchange rates.

Cons

  • Transfers can take several days to complete.

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 go through the verification procedure. In this case, consider making a transfer through your bank or to a cash pick-up service.

Cash pick-up

Pros

  • Lets you send money almost instantly.
  • Can be collected as cash on the other end.

Cons

  • Higher fees than other transfer methods.
  • Less favourable exchange rates than some online money transfers.

For you if:

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

Bank transfer

Pros

  • Can be convenient.

Cons

  • Higher fees than online money transfers.
  • 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.
