How we display buy back rates

You might notice the Malaysian ringgit rates shown here are different to the Malaysian ringgit 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 MYR / GBP exchange rate, we show the MYR rate relative to the pound so a rate of 0.1773 literally means 1 MYR = 0.1773 GBP.

However, UK currency suppliers choose to show this rate in terms of the amount of Malaysian ringgits you would need to exchange to receive 1 GBP, so (1 /) 0.1773 becomes 5.641. Or put another way, 5.641 MYR = 1 GBP. The two rates are interchangeable but currency suppliers prefer to show the second rate which they call the buy back rate.
