Edmonton Canadian Bank Exchange Rates Comparison

There are many foreign exchange providers that you can use, the most common being the big Canadian banks as shown below. However there are other small and large companies out there that specialize in foreign exchange services. Usually, banks and other foreign exchange providers have websites which provide you with a live exchange rate as well as their marked-up exchange rate commonly referred to as the “cash rate” or the middle-market exchange rate. An alternate option to compare rates is to simply call the bank or the foreign exchange provider for a no-obligation quote.

Bank Markup % Source
Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) 2.60% RBC Exchange Rates
TD Bank 2.60% TD Exchange Rates
Scotia Bank 2.80% Scotia Bank Exchange Rates
Bank of Montreal (BMO) 2.60% BMO Exchange Rates
CIBC 3.30% CIBC Exchange Rates

It is easy to see that the difference between banks and other foreign exchange providers is the markup. Banks have large markups due to the overhead costs that they incur while smaller, more specialized firms, such as Knightsbridge FX, offer the same quality of service at a much cheaper cost. To get a better idea of how much you can really save, you can find the difference between the bank’s percentage and Knightsbridge FX’s percentage and multiply that by the amount you want to transact. For example, if we look above RBC’s spread is 2.6% while Knightsbridge FX’s spread is .5% on the high end. That represents a 2.1% difference. On a $10,000 transaction that would represent potential savings of $210. Intuitively, you can guess that the larger the transaction amount the more savings you will have!

(It is important to remember that exchange rates fluctuate in real time and are constantly changing based on market events.)
