We'll help you to get the best Chinese Yuan exchange rate

We compare the Chinese Yuan 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 Chinese Yuan 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 Chinese Yuan page to find a local supplier near you.

Chinese Yuan rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Chinese Yuan has increased by 0.93% from 8.74 on the 29th September to 8.8209 today. This means £750 will buy you ¥60.68 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Chinese Yuan hit a high of 8.9753 on the 17th October and a low of 8.4833 on the 12th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Chinese Yuan exchange rate history page.

It is very difficult to summarise China. In a nation of billions of people where provinces are the size of countries; no short description can offer a succinct explanation of what this empire has to offer. The areas most likely to be visited by European and British travellers are Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou – so it is no coincidence that these are by far the most expensive places in China to visit. Nearly 600,000 British tourists visit China each year. If you want to see these iconic places you should budget around ¥500 CNY (£55) or more a day just for food and accommodation per person.

Counterfeit bank notes, especially the RMB100 note, are becoming common. They are normally "used" or crumpled to avoid detection. Unscrupulous traders will try to swap genuine bank notes for counterfeits. Ask in the bank or where you change your money how to identify fake notes. Check before accepting notes – it is quite normal to do so.

ATM Machines are common in Beijing on mainland China and in Hong Kong and Macau. Outside of these areas they are harder to find and credit cards are certainly less widely accepted as the Chinese have a cultural aversion to credit which means cash usually reigns king.

The Yuan is also widely traded on the currency markets. All UK banks and bureau de change stock the Yuan as it is such an important business currency. This means that the best exchange rates can be very competitive as there is a lot of choice available.

British passport holders need a visa to enter mainland China, with the exception of Hong Kong and Macao. China are very strict on their immigration policies and you must obtain a visa before you travel - see the Chinese Embassy website for more information on how and where to apply. Alternatively, see the UK Government website for information on travelling to china

If you visit Hong Kong while in China you will need a visa that allows you re-entry back into the mainland.

Within 24 hours of your arrival in China you must register your place of residence with the local Public Security Bureau. Foreigners' documents are regularly spot-checked and you may be fined or detained if you fail to comply with this requirement. If you are staying in a hotel you are automatically registered as part of the check-in process.

Prepaid Chinese Yuan Cards

Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in China and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
