The mid-market rate is the current official exchange rate for a currency. It’s the midway price between the current buy and sell prices on the global markets, hence the term “mid-market rates.”
To see how good quoted exchange rates are, you can compare them to the mid-market rate and see exactly how much you’re paying.1

Sending money with TSB: What to know
What we like
- Foreign currency accounts. TSB offers foreign currency accounts to help manage foreign money in more ways.
- Currency selection. TSB offers a range of currencies, including some less-common ones.
What to watch out for
- Additional fees. In addition to the $25 fee charged by TSB, other banks may also take fees for receiving money.
- Uncompetitive rates. Bank rates are typically not as competitive as those offered by specialist money transfer services.
How do TSB’s exchange rates compare?
Banks will typically not be as cost-effective as specialised money transfer services. This is partly because of the high fees associated with wiring money – which is what you do when sending an international transfer through banks – and partly because the exchange rates are often less competitive.
Compare TSB against some alternatives to see if you can save money on your next international transfer.
