Maybank exchange rates

See how Maybank's exchange rates stack up for your next international money transfer.

If you need to transfer money overseas or receive an overseas payment, the competitiveness of the exchange rate you're offered can make a big difference to the amount of money that ends up with your recipient at the end of the day. However, exchange rates will vary widely from one money transfer service to another, so it's always good to compare.

This guide shows the typical foreign currency exchange rates at Maybank and how they compare to some other options.

What are Maybank's exchange rates like?

To find out what the exchange rate is to send AUD with Maybank, you'll need to either have an account or call and speak to one of Maybank's currency specialists. Banks often add around 5% to 10% to the mid-market exchange rate in Australia, so you can expect to see something similar here.

A lot of specialist money transfer services, by comparison, will only add a margin of 1% to 2%. Get some quotes below to see how Maybank compares to the other options and to the mid-market rate.

Sending money with Maybank: What to know

What we like

  • Instant funds transfer to Brunei, Singapore and the Philippines. Maybank's RegionLink service provides the convenience of transferring funds to accounts with Maybank in Brunei, Singapore and the Philippines via Maybank Online Banking instantly at discounted rates.
  • Wide network. You can send money to virtually anywhere in the world with Maybank's wide network of correspondent banks.

What to watch out for

  • Not the best rates. Maybank often adds a larger margin to the exchange rate than specialist money transfer services typically do.
  • Fees apply. Although Maybank's overseas transfer fees may be lower than some other banks, they're still high compared to most specialist transfer services. Extra fees such as agent charges can also apply in different circumstances.

How do Maybank's exchange rates compare?

Maybank can be a great money transfer option if you make transfers to Brunei, Singapore and the Philippines frequently. But if you need to transfer to other countries, other specialist money transfer companies can typically offer you better exchange rates than Maybank.
