Checkout: How are currency conversion rates calculated?
The rate that you are quoting appears to be the market rate that Foreign Exchange Traders are trading at, at this time. These rates do not account for additional costs such as currency conversion costs, currency risk cost, and cross border fees charged by financial institutions. They are also the rate received when trading large sums of currency. Bongo provides competitive foreign exchange fees relative to individual cross border transactions.
It is important to note that you will be billed in your Native Currency and will not experience the fees you typically would on a Foreign Transaction from your credit card company.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
