How can I get the best exchange rate between the US dollar and the CFP franc?
The CFP franc is the name of the currency used by French overseas territories including French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Wallis and Fortuna. Although US dollars are sometimes accepted as payment on these Pacific islands, it’s recommended to use local currency as much as possible to get a better exchange rate.
For those traveling to Tahiti in French Polynesia, you’ll find the best exchange rate for cash at the airport or downtown in Papeete. Generally, exchanges rates between USD and XPF will be much better in Tahiti than anywhere in the US.
Using an online money transfer service is a smart choice if you’re looking to send money to someone in French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Wallis and Fortuna because of the competitive exchange rates and low fees — typically better than what banks offer.

What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and the CFP franc?
Due to the CFP franc being pegged to the euro at a fixed rate, the exchange rate between US dollars and CFP francs follows the exchange rate between US dollars and euros.
The euro is the second largest currency in the world by trading volume, only behind the US dollar. Since currencies are always traded in pairs, meaning that to buy one currency you have to sell another, the dollar and the euro together make up the world’s most traded currency pair. The exchange rate between the two currencies can be influenced by a range of different economic and political factors.
In particular, interest rates in both the US and EU, as well as economic growth in both regions can tremendously affect the exchange rate between the two currencies.

How does the CFP franc trade against the US dollar historically?
While the exchange rate between the CFP franc and euro is fixed at 119.332 francs per euro, the rate between francs and dollars fluctuates according to the USD/EUR rate. Before 1999, the CFP franc was pegged to the old French franc, which has since been replaced by the euro.
The dollar has tended to get stronger compared to the CFP franc over the past decade, starting from a low point for the dollar during the financial crisis in 2008. At that time, only about 75 francs were needed to buy 1 US dollar. Later that year, the dollar surged in value, reaching a level of 96 francs per dollar in only three months.
Since then, the overall trend has seen a strengthening US dollar compared to the CFP franc. In early 2017, the franc reached its lowest point against the dollar so far, with about 113 francs needed to get 1 US dollar.
