Also known as the interbank rate, the mid-market rate is the price on the halfway point between a bid and offer spread in a financial market. This means that it’s the true exchange rate before having a margin added, a common practice among most banks and money transfer services. You should always compare the rate you’re offered against the mid-market rate to see if it’s a good deal or not. The calculator below will give you an idea of the mid-market rate.1
