How can I get the best exchange rate between US dollar and the Bermudian dollar?

Bermuda has its own currency called the Bermudian dollar, which is pegged to the US dollar at a 1-to-1 exchange rate.

If you are looking to transfer money to someone in Bermuda, you should consider your options carefully. You can choose to make an international bank transfer, but you’ll likely be paying more because of the high transaction fees and the bad exchange rate that banks often charge. International bank transfer is typically a slow way to transfer money to Bermuda.

The fastest and cheapest way is usually online money transfer services. They offer better exchange rates, lower fixed fees, and faster transfers than traditional banks. There are many online money transfer services available and you can find a review of most of them here on finder.com

Because of the 1-to-1 peg with the US dollar, dollars are also widely accepted as payment in Bermuda. The two currencies circulate side by side in the country, which means it may not be necessary to exchange money at all if you are going to Bermuda.

Pound Sterling

The British pound sterling is the official currency of the United Kingdom and the fourth most traded currency in the world. Unlike the majority of EU countries, the UK didn’t adopt the euro in 1999, and the pound continues to be an important currency benchmark for many nations.

What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and the Bermudian dollar?

The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Bermudian dollar has remained at the current peg value since 1972.

There are no signs as of now that the current peg policy will change in the foreseeable future. The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Bermudian dollar will, therefore, remain stable regardless of what happens in the two countries both politically and economically.

If you are planning to make a big purchase or investment in Bermuda, you may want to look further into the direction of central bank policies in Bermuda. Follow what they say about the strength of the Bermudian dollar and any mentions about the peg with the US dollar.

If the US dollar were to enter into a sharp depreciation, the Bermudian central bank may decide to change their peg policy or simply revalue the peg. However, this is not a likely scenario for the near future.

There are no foreign exchange or capital controls in place in Bermuda, meaning you can exchange as much or as little as you want between Bermudian dollars and foreign currencies. US citizens are also generally allowed to open bank accounts in Bermuda.

How does the Bermudian dollar trade against the US dollar historically?

Before 1970, Bermuda used the British pound as their official currency. That year, Bermuda started issuing their own currency, although it was still linked to the British pound by a peg. Then, in 1972, Bermuda decided to switch their currency peg from the British pound over to the US dollar at a rate of 1-to-1.

The 1-to-1 exchange rate with the US dollar obviously made things easier for the large number of American tourists who visits Bermuda every year, as well as American companies doing business in Bermuda.
