How we display buy back rates
You might notice the Canadian dollar rates shown here are different to the Canadian 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 CAD / GBP exchange rate, we show the CAD rate relative to the pound so a rate of 0.6502 literally means 1 CAD = 0.6502 GBP.
However, UK currency suppliers choose to show this rate in terms of the amount of Canadian dollars you would need to exchange to receive 1 GBP, so (1 /) 0.6502 becomes 1.538. Or put another way, 1.538 CAD = 1 GBP. The two rates are interchangeable but currency suppliers prefer to show the second rate which they call the buy back rate.
