We'll help you to get the best US Dollar exchange rate

We compare the US Dollar rates from dozens of the UK's biggest currency suppliers including the Post Office, supermarkets, high street banks and specialist online travel money providers, so you can see in an instant who is offering the best deals after commission and delivery charges have been accounted for. Many of our travel money affiliates also offer our customers exclusive exchange rates that are even better than if you go to them direct, and on average our customers save £59 when they compare with us.

Generally speaking, specialist online travel money providers and bureau de change offer the best US Dollar exchange rates, followed by the supermarkets, the Post Office and then the banks. The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs. If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect US Dollars page to find a local supplier near you.

US Dollar rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the US Dollar has dropped by 0.07% from 1.2988 on the 21st July to 1.2979 today. Back then, £750 would have bought you $0.67 more than it would today. During this period the US Dollar hit a high of 1.3126 on the 20th September and a low of 1.257 on the 15th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our US Dollar exchange rate history page.

The US Dollar (or American Dollar) is the official standard unit of currency in the United States of America, and the unofficial currency of more than 10 other countries around the world including: Afghanistan, Cambodia, Lebanon, and Zimbabwe. The US Dollar is often used when the local official currency is unstable and this can be a warning sign to travellers.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) publish advice under for travellers the banner of "Know Before You Go" for the following countries: Afghanistan, Cambodia, Lebanon and Zimbabwe.If you are travelling to the United States then you should make sure you have checked the latest travel advice especially regarding credit cards.

If you are travelling to the United States of America as a British Citizen Passport holder then your passport must be valid for the entirety of your stay.

Visa Waiver Programme

When travelling to the United States of America you can enter the country for up to 90 days on what is called a Visa Waiver Programme which allows you to stay in the country whilst visiting for tourism, certain types of business trips or if you are in transit to another country.  However, if your passport describes your nationality has something else other than a British Citizen then you will need to apply for a visa at your nearest US embassy before travelling to the US.

Other travel restrictions to the United States of America which are under the visa waiver programme include specific security features that your passport might have and whether you have any current convictions, pending convictions or you have been arrested in the past. If you need more information or you have any doubts about your situation please contact your, nearest US embassy for confirmation.

Electronic System for Travel Authorisation

When travelling to the United States of America by either Air or Sea you will be required to provide your passport details, country of residence and the address of your first night’s accommodation in the US at least 72 hours in advance. This is what is called an electronic system for travel authorisation or ESTA which is information that your airline or cruise operator will need in advance to secure your entry to the US and failure to provide this information will result in refusal to travel to the country. If you are arriving by land to the US you do not need to apply for an ESTA.

The VWP or Visa Waiver Programme allows you to stay in the US for up to 90 days. If you travel outside of the United States of America to the nearby countries such as Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean you can usually re-enter the US by using the ESTA, however, the time spent out of the United States of America will be included in the 90 day VWP period. When you travel to the US you will need to provide evidence that you have sufficient funds for the duration of your stay even if you are staying with friends or family in the United States of America.

Other US Travel Restrictions

If you take prescription medicines and you will need to take these with you on your trip to the United States of America there are specific restrictions and prohibitions to consider and if you are travelling to the US with a child under the age of 18 with just one parent or with someone who isn’t the legal parent or guardian of the child you will need to provide certain documents to the US customs and border protection agency.

For any extra information on travelling to the USA from the UK compareholidaymoney.com partners with the FCO and you can find more travel advice and information on entry requirements on their website.
