How to Convert your Canadian Dollars to New Zealand Dollars?
Last Updated: 09 Mar 2023

When converting Canadian Dollars to New Zealand Dollars, the goal is to ensure the value of your money carries over. Here’s how to find the best CAD to NZD exchange rates.

The world bank¹ found that banks remain the most expensive type of service provider when it comes to international money transfers.

Therefore, you would do well to avoid your bank if you need to convert Canadian Dollars to New Zealand Dollars. Otherwise, you’re paying for an expensive markup on your CAD-to-NZD exchange rate plus high transfer fees.

Fortunately, converting CAD to NZD is far cheaper with a specialist provider. It all begins with getting an excellent exchange rate.

Why Does the CAD to NZD Exchange Rate Matter?

The exchange rate you get from banks isn’t always the true rate. This “topped-up rate” will increase your money transfer costs while reducing the amount your recipient receives.

The best rate is the mid-market rate because your Canadian Dollars will be worth more in New Zealand Dollars.

If there’s an exchange rate markup, you’re getting the mid-market rate plus an additional percentage. This is a common tactic high street banks use to maximize profits when pricing your transfer.

Example. If the mid-market rate for CAD to NZD is 1.20 NZD per Canadian Dollar, and your bank adds a 5% markup, your recipient gets 1.14 NZD per 1 CAD instead.

For a CAD 30,000 transfer, your recipient receives NZD 34,200 instead of NZD 36,000. Hence, you have to overpay to ensure your recipient gets the correct amount in their currency.

In contrast, if your provider offers the mid-market rate, you save just over CAD 1,500, which is yours to pocket.

CAD to NZD Forecast

It helps to understand the FX market before exchanging Canadian Dollars for New Zealand ones.

One important thing to note is that the NZD/CAD exchange rate constantly fluctuates.

For example, analysts forecast² the exchange rate will be priced at 1.17808 by the end of this quarter and at 1.20532 in one year (2023).

If the New Zealand Dollar strengthens against the Canadian Dollar, this will increase your money transfer costs.

To reduce the risk of exchange rate fluctuations, consider timing your transfer strategically, using specialist tools like a forward contract or a market order.

  • A forward contract lets you lock the desired exchange rate to use it for future transfers.
  • A market order enables you to target a rate you’re happy with, and your transfer is completed automatically once that the exchange rate is reached.
