Citibank exchange rates

Compare Citibank's current exchange rates before your next international money transfer.

Exchange rates can make all the difference when sending money overseas. And while using your bank might seem convenient, it often won’t offer the best value for money.

The smart thing to do is to compare your options – and that means knowing what exchange rate you’ll get. Begin by checking out Citibank’s current exchange rates and comparing them to other options.

What are Citibank’s foreign exchange rates?

To find out what exchange rates Citibank offers, you’ll need to either sign up or already have an account with Citibank. Banks in Singapore, in general, will add around 4.5% to the exchange rate as a margin, according to the World Bank.

A lot of specialist money transfer services, by comparison, will only add a margin of 1–2%. Get some quotes below to see how Citibank compares to the other options and to the mid-market rate.

Citibank currency exchange: What to know

What we like

  • Instant transfers between Citibank accounts. As a global bank, you can make instant transfers to overseas Citibank accounts in over 15 countries.
  • Flexible account options. The Citibank Global Transfer (CGT) service lets you make instant international payments to eligible Citibank accounts without any transfer fees. Meanwhile, the Citi Global Foreign Currency Account can hold up to 9 different currencies, cut international transfer fees and come with a wide range of transactional features.

What to watch out for

  • Uncompetitive exchange rates. Citibank adds a larger margin to exchange rates than specialist money transfer services typically do.
  • Fees apply. Different fees can apply in different circumstances. Compared to dedicated international money transfer services, it can be more difficult to ensure you’ve accounted for all possible fees.
