Generally speaking, specialist online travel money providers and bureau de change offer the best Colombian Peso 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 Colombian Pesos page to find a local supplier near you.
Over the past 90 days, the Colombian Peso has dropped by 1.37% from 3541.87 on the 20th May to 3493.19 today. Back then, £750 would have bought you $36,510.00 more than it would today. During this period the Colombian Peso hit a high of 3649.9 on the 5th July and a low of 3352.55 on the 10th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Colombian Peso exchange rate history page.
The Colombian Peso is the only legal currency used in the Colombian Republic, although in tourist areas US Dollars and Euros are widely accepted. The Colombian Peso is not a commonly traded currency here in the UK, and most bureau de change and Post Office branches require you to order in advance as they may need to order the currency in. Ordering Colombian Pesos online is usually much quicker and cheaper than buying in the high street.
The main banks in Colombia including Bancolumbia, Banco de Bogota, Banco Davivienda and Banco Occidente all offer ATMs where you can use VISA and MasterCard cards to withdraw additional currency if you require it. Be vigilant when using ATM's as theft is common especially at night.
There is a departure tax of $35 USD (or equivalent in COP) when you leave the country. This is sometimes included in the price of your return air ticket so you should check beforehand with your travel provider.
Before you travel to Colombia you can get advice from the UK Government website
British nationals can enter Colombia for up to 90 days as a visitor without a visa at the discretion of the Colombian Immigration Officer on arrival. You may need to provide evidence of return or onward travel.
If you enter Colombia by land you should make sure your passport is stamped by the immigration authorities. Failure to do so may result in a fine on departure. If the immigration office on the border is closed, seek help at the nearest office of Migración Colombia.
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 Colombia and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
We compare travel insurance quotes to Colombia and other worldwide destinations, but you don't need to tell us your life story to get covered. In fact, we don't even ask for your name or email address, so you can be sure we won't bombard you with endless junk mail after requesting a quote.
If you need Colombian Pesos in a hurry or don't want to wait in for home delivery, our Click & Collect service can search for Colombian Peso suppliers near you. Reserve and buy online and collect in-store at a time that's convenient for you.
If you need to send Colombian Pesos overseas or receive funds from a bank account in Colombia, you may be better off using the services of a specialist foreign exchange broker.
