Current Exchange Rates

Please note: The exchange rates below are only for funds being transferred out of your Nationwide account. The exchange rate for payments into your account may be different, as the foreign currency payment for your account will be sent by the sending bank and when we receive it we will convert it into Sterling using our latest standard inbound exchange rate. This transaction will show on your account statement.

When you make a SWIFT or SEPA payment in a foreign currency from your Nationwide current account, you’ll be given the current exchange rate for your specific payment before you submit your request.

Comparing costs for sending payments in an EU/EEA currency within the UK and EEA

When you ask us to make a payment to an account in an EEA country in euros or another EU/EEA currency, we will also provide you with our charges for carrying out the currency conversion calculated by comparing our standard outbound exchange rate against the latest euro foreign exchange reference rates issued by the European Central Bank (ECB).

Both our standard rate and the ECB rate vary and so the latest rates available to NBS will be used to calculate the total currency conversion charge. Our standard outbound exchange rate will be displayed at the point that you request the payment within the Internet Bank and the effective date of the ECB rate that will be used will also be displayed, as these rates are updated every working day at 3pm.
