Introduction

Currency Conversion translates fares and rates from one currency to another.  Due to the exchange rate fluctuating, the currency conversion transaction will use the current rate at the time of the request.

 

Restrictions:

  • Amadeus:
    • uses the BSR (Bankers’ Selling Rate) as the default conversion rate.
  • Galileo:
    • uses the BBR (Banker’s Buying Rate) table for basic currency conversion.
  • Sabre:
    • uses the BSR (Bankers' Selling Rate) from the EPR as the default conversion rate.
  • Worldspan:
    • uses the BSR (Bankers’ Selling Rate) as the default conversion rate.
