HSBC exchange rates
A complete list of foreign exchange rates offered by HSBC.
We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!
Finding a more favourable exchange rate can make a significant impact on how much reaches your recipient when you send money overseas.
Take a look at the live exchange rate on offer from HSBC below and see how this stacks up against some specialist money transfer services.
What are HSBC’s foreign exchange rates?
The table below shows a sample of HSBC's exchange rates, last updated on 21 March 2019.
"Buy" refers to the price at which HSBC purchases each foreign currency listed. When you exchange AUD for another currency, that's the price HSBC gives.
"Sell" refers to the price at which HSBC will sell these foreign currencies in exchange for AUD. If you're sending money overseas from Australia, this is most likely the column that interests you.
Sending money with HSBC: What to know
What we like
- Multi-currency accounts: As an international bank, HSBC offers an exceptional range of multi-currency and international banking options. This opens up new ways of moving and saving money.
- Instant transfers and preferential rates: HSBC multi-currency accounts can make instant international currency transfers and conversions at preferential rates.
What to watch out for
- Account requirements. Multi-currency accounts aren't the best choice for everyone and if you aren't eligible for one or don't need it, another option may be more suitable.
- Fees and rates. Even with a multi-currency account, HSBC may not be as cheap as a specialist money transfer service.
How do HSBC exchange rates compare?
HSBC is more heavily geared towards international banking than most, but it still takes margins on its rates and fees on its services, and won't necessarily be the most cost-effective option, even for existing HSBC customers.
Use the table below to check the current rates and fees for some specialist money transfer services to see how they compare.
