A complete list of today's Bankwest foreign currency exchange rates
Exchange rates make a big difference when you're making a transfer from one currency to another.
If you're after the best exchange rate you can get, it's worth comparing Bankwest's rate side-by-side with some specialist money transfer services. Often, you're able to get a better deal somewhere other than with your usual bank.
What are Bankwest's foreign exchange rates?
The table below shows the daily Bankwest exchange rate, updated 19 May 2019.
In it, "buys" refers to the price at which Bankwest purchases a foreign currency when you're converting it to AUD. "Sells" is the rate you'll get when converting Australian dollars to a foreign currency.
It's called the "mid-market rate" because it's the exact middle of the market between the current buy and sell prices on global currency markets.It's rare to get the exact mid-market rate in an international money transfer, so the more competitive exchange rates will typically be whatever's closest to the mid-market rates.
To get a better sense of how good or bad a bank's exchange rates are, you'll need to compare them to the mid-market rates, which you can see in the graph below.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
