14/6/08 - Current Exchange Rates are Extremely Good

AUS vs JPY

 

The Aussie Dollar ($AUS) is currently buying ¥101.568 Japanese Yen. Our dollar has not been this strong since October 2007 which means great savings for you when purchasing an import.

• on a $15,000 car you would expect a saving of $600

• on a $20,000 car you would expect a saving of $1,000

• on a $30,000 car you would expect a saving of $1,900

based on the normal rates we have been seeing since the start of the year, however you would be advised to make the most of this current saving and act fast as historical charts show that it never lasts more than 2 months above ¥100 Japanese Yen.

As always you pay all our suppliers direct for services as we have no markup on any costs. When you transfer your money to Japan for the vehicle your bank will work of a reduced exchange rate. Depending on the bank, the rate is usually 2-3 yen below the current rate. So if our Australian Dollar was buying ¥100 Japanese Yen your bank will use an a reduced rate of ¥97 or ¥98 Japanese Yen.
