Asda offers a convenient way to buy a multitude of different currencies. However, foreign exchange rates represent a major pricing point and there is often little clarity around them. We researched Asda’s travel money exchange rates to provide you a table showcasing their currency rate spread. Hopefully we can help you save money on your holidays.

Asda exchange rates: Information and tips

Know the latest interbank exchange rate for your currency pairs

The interbank rate (also called mid-market rate) is the midpoint between the buy price and sell price of two currencies on the currency markets. Asda does not offer the interbank rate but instead adds a margin to it, which makes the foreign currency transaction more expensive for you. Before using Asda for your travel money needs, make sure to know the current interbank exchange rate. That way, you’ll be able to calculate FX losses on the currency conversion. You can find the latest interbank rates using our currency converter.

How to calculate exchange rate loss

Here’s what you need to do in order to determine how much Asda’s travel money exchange rate spread is going to cost you:

  1. Find the current interbank rate for your currencies using our currency converter
  2. Multiply your original amount by the current interbank rate
  3. Multiply your original amount by the exchange rate Asda offers
  4. Subtract the first amount from the second amount
  5. This is the amount you’ll lose through currency conversion with Asda

Order your currency online and in advance

Ordering your foreign currency before your trip allows you to compare with rates and fees of other providers. Ordering it online also is usually much cheaper than buying currency at the airport or on arrival to your holiday destination. Make sure to always compare exchange rates before finalising an order.

For the best exchange rates, we highly recommend TransferWise. Enjoy your first transfer for free on transfers up to £500.
