The currency exchange rates here and in other sites is based on "interbank exchange rates". These rates are based on trading in a global network of more than 1,000 banks, and are not available through consumer or retail channels.

Consumers may use these rates as a reference only. To obtain actual retail rates, contact your local financial institution or currency exchange.

Retail spreads (the difference between the bid and ask prices) for smaller amounts are not reflected in these interbank prices since they vary among payment systems, countries and banks.

For these retail rates use this formula:

Value you will pay = value you get in this converter + X% (due to the margin for the cost of the exchange services).
The value X% varies from 1 to 10% or even more and depends on many factors. Examples:
1 - ATMs typically add 2 percent;
2 - Credit cards typically add 2 to 3 percent;
3 - Banks and foreign exchange kiosks add around 5%;
4 - Some Internet based foreign currency exchange agencies add 11 percent or even more.
