How we display buy back rates

You might notice the Australian dollar rates shown here are different to the Australian dollar rates offered by currency suppliers on our comparison pages. The rates are actually the same but are just presented in different ways. When we talk about the AUD / GBP exchange rate, we show the AUD rate relative to the pound so a rate of 0.5384 literally means 1 AUD = 0.5384 GBP.

However, UK currency suppliers choose to show this rate in terms of the amount of Australian dollars you would need to exchange to receive 1 GBP, so (1 /) 0.5384 becomes 1.857. Or put another way, 1.857 AUD = 1 GBP. The two rates are interchangeable but currency suppliers prefer to show the second rate which they call the buy back rate.
