Exchange rates can sometimes change and sadly banks do not always inform us when they alter them (especially if they raise exchange rates, rather than lower them). A lower foreign exchange rate will typically get you a better deal when sending money to/from Swiss francs (CHF), euro (EUR) and other popular currencies.
