Why do we have different exchange rates

Banks in international comparison: the exchange rates are calculated so differently

Most recently, we showed you in which countries the euro performed particularly well in the past year. Today we're going to show you how hidden costs are added to exchange rates in Europe. Because if you make a transfer in a foreign currency, the bank of your choice will prescribe an exchange rate. The euro is then transferred to the target currency at this rate. What many do not know, however, is that the exchange rate of the banks usually hardly differs from the officially set exchange rates.

Accordingly, part of the amount is lost in the transfer. This difference is hardly noticeable for smaller amounts. With transactions in the higher range, however, the loss in value is clearly noticeable. As a banking specialist, we have therefore found out how much the banks' rates differ from the official exchange rates.
