When is the best time to buy?

The best time to buy INR depends on sociopolitical atmosphere, interest and inflation rates, foreign trade, public debt, and export to import price ratios.

The Indian economy is slowly growing, with developments in the technology sector earning the INR more value. However, the ongoing trade war between China and the US could hurt India, who trades a lot with China.

How does GBP trade against INR historically?

From 2002 through to 2008, the value of the pound fluctuated between roughly 75 and 85 rupees. During the financial crisis, the pound dropped heavily against the rupee, falling from 83.94 in October 2008 to 67.56 by January 2009.

As the UK economy slowed down after the crisis, its exchange rate dropped to 65 rupees in 2010 and held steady for about a year. However over the next five years the value of the pound rose against most major currencies, including the rupee. When Brexit was announced the British Pound weakened and hit a low of 81 rupees in May 2017. Since then the British Pound has recovered and now buys around 99 rupees.

What affects GBP to INR exchange rate?

Strict government policies imposed by the Reserve Bank of India affects how frequently it’s traded on international markets. This gives the British pound, the fourth most traded currency, an advantage.

India’s Foreign Exchange Management Act places tight restrictions on outgoing rupee transfers, making it challenging for consumers to send money overseas from India.

The colonial history of Britain and India makes the pound and rupee a popular currency pair — with consistent fluctuation, with the pound dominating.

Bottom line

If you decide to use a money transfer service to change your GBP to INR, consider its fees, time it takes to transfer and its rate compared to the mid-market rate.
