We'll help you to get the best Egyptian Pound exchange rate

We compare the Egyptian Pound 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 Egyptian Pound 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 Egyptian Pounds page to find a local supplier near you.

Egyptian Pound rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Egyptian Pound has increased by 0.64% from 20.5205 on the 20th August to 20.6523 today. This means £750 will buy you E£98.85 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Egyptian Pound hit a high of 21.2548 on the 11th October and a low of 20.4984 on the 31st October. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Egyptian Pound exchange rate history page.

Egypt is still experiencing a period of change and this has affected the value of the Egyptian Pound. Because of this it is advisable to take a small quantity of US Dollars with you when visiting the country as some establishments (especially at tourist attractions and for tours) will only accept payment in Dollars.

There is also a shortage of small change and small denomination notes so when ordering currency it is worth specifying small value notes for most of your currency. You may be charged a small surcharge for requesting a specific breakdown but it could save you money in the long run because if the Egyptian shop or restaurant cannot change your note they may simply not give you change! Try and get as much of your travel money in £1 EGP, £5 EGP, £10 EGP and £20 EGP as you can, and avoid £100 EGP or larger notes. Be aware that because of political instability in Egypt, this currency is sometimes unavailable to buy in the UK.

If you are taking a credit or debit card to Egypt, consider a prepaid currency card instead as they offer lower fees and are accepted everywhere.

When entering and leaving Egypt the maximum local currency you can take with you is 5000 Egyptian Pounds. Other currencies have no limits; however, if you are carrying more than 10,000 GBP with you upon entry you must declare this to customs.

Other customs restrictions include declaring whether you have electrical items and video equipment with you which again must be declared upon entry to the country.

Before you travel to Egypt you can get advice from the UK Government website

All British Passport holders usually require a visa to enter Egypt. However, if you are travelling to the tourist Red Sea resorts (Sharm El Sheik, Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba) and only intend on staying for up to 14 days maximum you will not be required to pay for a visa.

If you plan on travelling out of these areas (including for excursions such as going to Cairo) you will need to buy a visa from the Egyptian Embassy or when you arrive at the airport. A Visa usually costs around £15 GBP (or equivalent) and can be paid for in EGP, GBP, USD or EUR.

Prepaid Egyptian Pound 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 Egypt and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
