The Bahraini Dinar is a pegged currency, with the exchange rate set by the International Monetary Fund and fixed to 1 USD = BHD 0.376. This means that there are two factors that are effecting the above exchange rates: firstly the rates are tied to the US Dollar which means any changes to the US Dollar will directly affect the Dinar, and secondly the profit margins of individual currency suppliers can affect the exchange rate and drive costs up.
All of the suppliers above are buying their Bahraini Dinars at the same rates on the same money markets but they have their own costs in fulfilling your order and dispatching it. The online bureau de change have far lower overheads and are able to offer you better Bahraini Dinar exchange rates regardless of the amount you are looking to buy (although many have a minimum order value of about £450).
Many currency suppliers, for example the Post Office and Currency Club, are offering better exchange rates for larger orders. It may be worth, if you are traveling with friends, seeing if you can place one larger order rather than several smaller ones to take advantage of these stepped exchange rates.
