South African Rand to US Dollar (ZAR/USD) Exchange Rate Table

It's hard to get the best exchange rate to transfer South African Rand to the USA

Nearly every bank and money transfer company offer a different exchange rate to transfer South African Rand to the USA.

Hardly any of them offer the best rate you see on Google or XE.


TransferWise does

TransferWise is one of the only large, safe and low-cost companies that offer you the real ZAR to USD exchange rate you see on Google or XE.

So how do they make any money? They charge a fee which is clearly explained before you transfer your money. This way you'll know exactly what your transfer will cost.


Our tips:

  • Avoid using your credit or debit card to pay for your transfer. Sometimes, there are extra card surcharges.
  • Compare the exchange rates and fees of TransferWise before you start.
  • Make sure you have your ID. You may need it to set up your account.
