How we display buy back rates

You might notice the Saudi riyal rates shown here are different to the Saudi riyal 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 SAR / GBP exchange rate, we show the SAR rate relative to the pound so a rate of 0.2121 literally means 1 SAR = 0.2121 GBP.

However, UK currency suppliers choose to show this rate in terms of the amount of Saudi riyals you would need to exchange to receive 1 GBP, so (1 /) 0.2121 becomes 4.716. Or put another way, 4.716 SAR = 1 GBP. The two rates are interchangeable but currency suppliers prefer to show the second rate which they call the buy back rate.
