Foreign exchange can be confusing, so to help break through the confusion, here are some common terms associated with currency:

Sell rate – This is the rate at which we sell foreign currency in exchange for local currency. For example, if you were heading to Europe, you would exchange British Pounds for Euros at the sell rate. 

Buy rate – This is the rate at which we buy foreign currency back from you into your local currency. For example, if you were returning from America, we would exchange your US Dollars back into British Pounds at the buy rate of the day. 

Holiday money rate or tourist rate – This is another term for a sell rate. 

Spot rate – This is known more formally as the ‘interbank’ rate. It is the rate banks or large financial institutions charge each other when trading significant amounts of foreign currency. In the business, this is sometimes referred to as a ‘spot rate’. 

Spread – This is the difference between the buy and sell rates offered by a foreign exchange provider such as us. 

Cross rate – This is the rate we give to customers who want to exchange currencies that do not involve the local currency. For example, if you want to exchange Australian Dollars into US Dollars. 

Commission – This is a common fee that foreign exchange providers charge for exchanging one currency with another.

The exchange rates of the world’s currencies constantly move up and down against each other based on supply and demand. The more in demand a currency is, the higher its price will be. Changes in the foreign exchange market can be caused by this supply and demand, as well as by political and economic events.
There are a lot of foreign currency providers in Australia, mainly high-street banks, all offering you a range of products and services. You can spend a lot of time to trying to find the best exchange rate in the market. But there’s usually very little difference between rates offered – sometimes it can be a matter of cents.
The market (or spot) exchange rate is the rate banks exchange currencies at. A lot of extra processes and people go into providing you with currency. The cost of these is reflected in the price of the currency. At Travelex, we work hard to give you great value for your foreign currency. We’re constantly striving to do things more efficiently, so that because we want you to get the best possible deal we can offer.
Currencies constantly move up and down against each other as financial markets change. These movements can be caused by supply and demand, as well as by political and economic events.
Exchange rates are influenced by banks and trading institutions and the volume of currency they are buying and selling at any given time. Currencies are traded (bought and sold) daily around the world.
One currency can be purchased by another currency through banking institutions or on the open market. The volumes of currencies traded are increased and decreased depending on the attractiveness of any particular currency, which depends on a multitude of factors such as political stability, economic strength, government debt and fiscal policy among others.
Government central banks also have the ability to set a currency at a constant price through a method called pegging, which essentially tethers the value of one currency to another. The value (or price) of a currency is determined by its traded volume. If a currency is competitively priced, traders will buy the currency, essentially driving up its value. If a currency is not competitively priced, traders may avoid buying, or even sell it, essentially driving down its value.
