Learn how to get the best English exchange rate before exchanging your money

The United Kingdom Pound is the official English currency. GBP/CAD represents the value of English money in Canadian money and it is called the 'exchange rate' or 'forex rate'. This exchange rate from United Kingdom Pound to Canadian Dollar is today at 1.690.

As an example, suppose you are from Ottawa Canada and you travel to London UK. There, you need to get 1000 United Kingdom Pounds (£) at a London bank to pay your hotel. In this case you would pay 1.690 * 1000 = 1690 Canadian Dollars ($). But, in practice, you will pay more (or perhaps much more) to get the same amount of your foreign currency due to the margin for the money conversion services costs like: commissions, credit card surcharges, ATM fees and other expenses. If, for example, you are using a credit card, this margin will typically be around 2 to 3 percent. We recommend that you choose the best place to make your money exchange because there can be a large difference between forex rates you will get.

In the example above for a 1000 United Kingdom Pounds amount, the result of the money conversion is 1723.8 CAD for a 2% margin or 1740.7 CAD for a 3% margin.

Some Internet based foreign currency exchange agencies add 10 percent or even more. So, if you make the same calculations above, there will be a difference of about 169 CAD depending on which forex bank or agency you choose to exchange your money. So, that's why we advise you to seek the best place to get the best fx rates for your upcoming money transfer/exchange. The only way to know what is the best exchange rate is to know what the current rate is. You can easily accomplish this by using periodically our currency converter above to get an idea of what forex rate to expect.

Note: If you use our currency converter, you only need to choose the amount of margin in its drop-down list and have an estimate of how much you will pay to get the desired amount.
