How to get the best AUD to JPY exchange rate

These tips can help you find the best exchange rate for when you transfer your AUD into yen:

  • Check the mid-market rate. This is today's exchange rate. You can check it using the currency converter tool above. This will tell you whether a transfer provider offers good value for money.
  • Pay attention to the fine print on your quote. 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.
  • Keep an eye on the news. Staying up-to-date on any news or key events in Japan 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 JPY.
  • Make use of limit orders and forward contracts. A limit order allows you to set your desired exchange rate. When that rate becomes available, 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. Your bank often offers a less-competitive rate than many money transfer providers. Compare the fees and exchange rates using our table to find the best transfer service for you.

If you don’t want to get cash out in your chosen currency, try checking out the various travel cards on offer. Travel money cards provide the convenience of a credit or debit card with your exchange rate already locked in. Regardless of where you're headed, it’s worth checking out some of our tips to save on currency exchange fees.

Learn more: Why aren’t I paying today’s exchange rate?

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 AUD$1 to JPY80.7. You go to the ATM in Japan and withdraw money using your Australian bank card. Not only will you be hit by your bank's fee as well as the ATM fee, but you'll notice the exchange rate you get isn't the same as the market rate – the amount of JPY you end up getting is smaller.

This difference between the mid-market rate and the rate charged by the banks or transfer services is called the "spread". Some transfer providers offer lower fees but weaker exchange rates, while others charge no fees but profit from the margin between their rates and the mid-market rate.


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

The best time to exchange money is when the Australian dollar is strong or the Japanese yen is weak. This means you'll end up with more yen for your dollars. It's impossible to predict how the Australian dollar will perform, but you can understand what could influence it.

Factors that influence exchange rates

  • Political climate. A political election can impact exchange rates for that country, especially if there's any political uncertainty.
  • Inflation levels. Typically a country with lower inflation rates will have a higher currency value.
  • Interest rates. If a country's central bank (for example the Reserve Bank of Australia) changes its interest rates, this can impact the value of the currency.
  • Importing and exporting. If the country is exporting a lot of goods to other countries, this is good for the country's currency.
  • Debt levels. If the country is in a lot of debt this could negatively impact its currency in relation to other currencies.

By looking at the exchange rate’s history, you can attempt to predict its future behaviour. Take a look at the following historical exchange rates for the past 10 years, 10 months and 10 days. If you sent AUD$1,000 to Japan in August 2015 when the AUD was worth JPY91, you would have received JPY91,000. But a year later in August 2016, when the currency dropped to 1 AUD = 77 JPY, you would only have received JPY77,000.
