How do I buy Egyptian pounds?

Using our comparison form at the top of the page, enter the amount of Egyptian pounds you want to buy, select your preferred payment method(s) and click 'Compare Deals'. We'll return a list of UK currency suppliers who are selling Egyptian pounds right now along with their latest exchange rates and delivery information. The results are sorted in order of who is offering the most Egyptian pounds after all fees and delivery charges have been added which means the best deals are always at the top of the table. Choose the supplier you want to order with and follow the link to their website where you can place your order with them directly.

When is the best time to buy Egyptian pounds?

It is impossible for us to predict the best time to buy Egyptian pounds. We provide some historical exchange rate data in the chart above so you can see the overall trend, but beyond that we cannot offer any advice on when to buy. Our advice is to not worry too much about trying to perfectly time the market. Unless you are buying tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of currency, the daily changes in exchange rates do not make a huge difference to the amount of currency you'll receive.

Can I collect my Egyptian pounds in person?

Yes, some currency suppliers do allow you to collect Egyptian pounds from them in person. We have a dedicated Click & Collect page where you can find the nearest supplier in your area. If you plan on collecting in person, we recommend ordering or reserving your Egyptian pounds online first on the supplier's website to guarantee the exchange rate. Some suppliers offer lower exchange rates if you walk in off the street, but you can usually order online in advance and collect your currency in store at the better online rate.

How long does Delivery take?

Most currency suppliers will dispatch your order on the same or next working day after they receive your payment, and all orders are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. However, just in case any unexpected delays crop up we recommend ordering no later than 3 working days before you are due to travel. If you've left it too late for home delivery, check out our Click & Collect page to find a local Egyptian pound supplier near you. We cover most UK airports, so in the worst case scenario you can reserve your currency online (at the better online rate) and pick it up from the departure lounge before you fly.

Do I have to be at home when my currency is delivered?

No. All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. Somebody at your address will need to sign for the package but if nobody is home when the postman attempts to deliver, they'll leave a missed delivery card and you can either collect the package from your nearest sorting office or arrange for it to be re-delivered on a more convenient day.

Can I have my Egyptian pounds sent to a different address?

Generally, no. This is ultimately at the discretion of the currency supplier, but most suppliers will only deliver to the home address of the person paying for the currency (i.e. the card or bank account holder's address). This is for security reasons because a signature is required when the currency is delivered, and signatures from work or other addresses can be unreliable and difficult to prove.

What happens if the package goes missing during delivery?

All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. This type of postage is more secure than standard post and is meant specifically for high-value and important items because tracking is enabled by default and a signature is required as proof of delivery. It is very rare for a Special Delivery package to go missing, but in the unlikely event that it does you will be completely reimbursed by Royal Mail for the full value of the currency and the cost of postage.

What payment method should I use?

The payment method you choose is important because it affects whether or not you pay any extra fees during checkout, and also whether you are financially protected in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the supplier. We have written a more detailed guide about choosing a payment method on our blog: A guide to payment methods.

Are there any limits on the amount of Egyptian pounds I can order?

Most, but not all, currency suppliers have a minimum and a maximum amount you can order from them, however we automatically factor these into our comparisons so if you tell us exactly how much you want to spend we'll only return suppliers that can fulfill your request. Most suppliers also have a minimum amount that you can order from them to qualify for free home delivery; if you order less than this amount you can still get your order delivered by you'll have to pay for postage. Again, we automatically factor these charges into our comparisons so you don't need to worry about any hidden costs during checkout.

Is ordering online safe and secure?

All of the currency suppliers we compare use SSL encryption as standard on their ordering pages. This means that when you place an order, a secure connection is created between you and the supplier and your personal and payment details are transmitted using the same level of encryption as online banking.

Am I financially protected if something goes wrong with the supplier?

The level of financial protection you receive is determined by the payment method you choose. For more information see our FAQ above: What payment method should I use?

What checks does Compare Holiday Money carry out on the listed suppliers?

All currency suppliers are required to complete a comprehensive onboarding questionnaire before we list them on the Compare Holiday Money website. This questionnaire provides us with information on the supplier's background, financial history, directors and technical capabilities, as well as document any legal and regulatory requirements the supplier may have. Our compliance team verify the answers by cross-referencing them with various online registers such as Companies House, the Supervised Business Register and the Financial Conduct Authority, and we then make a decision as to whether to list them. Once a supplier has been listed we run regular audits to check the ongoing status and accuracy of the information provided, and if any issues are flagged up we immediately suspend the listing until the supplier corrects the issue or provides us with clarification. Despite these stringent checks, we cannot guarantee the solvency of any suppliers who appear on the Compare Holiday Money website and we urge all customers to conduct their own research before transacting with a company.

Do I need to provide ID or other documents?

It depends. You may need to provide some ID, typically a copy of your passport or driver's licence, depending on how much currency you are ordering. Most suppliers won't ask for ID if you're ordering less than £1,000 but most will if you're ordering £2,500 or more. If you're ordering £10,000 or more you may need to provide additional information on the source of the funds. The exact requirements vary from supplier to supplier, but they will make it clear what form(s) of ID and other documents they require before you place an order.

Can I sell back any unused Egyptian pounds?

Yes, we have a section of our website dedicated to currency buybacks: Exchange Egyptian pounds for pounds sterling.

Can I send money to a bank account in Egypt instead?

Yes, we can facilitate the transfer of currency into an overseas bank account; see our Money Transfers page for more information.

The Egyptian pound is the official currency of Egypt and the unofficial currency of the Gaza Strip; it uses the currency code EGP and symbol ج.م or E£ to distinguish it from other pound-denominated currencies. Due to political and economical constraints, Egyptian pounds are not always readily available to buy in the United Kingdom but can be purchased on arrival in Egypt. In 2016, the Central Bank of Egypt decided to float the pound on the world currency markets after years of tight control and previous pegging to the US dollar in an effort to stabilise the currency and preserve its value.

Egyptian pounds can be sub-divided into 100 piastre (pt). Coins are minted in the denominations of 25pt, 50pt and E£1. Banknotes are all bilingual, with Arabic texts and Eastern Arabic numerals on one side, and English texts and Western Arabic numerals on the other. The images on one side are all of well known Egyptian Mosques with various significant Egyptian symbols, artifacts and buildings on the other. The denominations are 25pt (Ayesha mosque, Coat of arms of Egypt), 50pt (Al-Azhar Mosque, Ramesses II), E£1 (Mosque of Qaitbay, Abu Simbel temples), E£5 (Mosque of Ibn Tulun, A Pharaonic engraving of Hapi offering bounties), E£10 (Al Rifa'i Mosque, Khafra), E£20 (Mosque of Muhammad Ali, A Pharaonic war chariot and frieze from the chapel of Sesostris I), E£50 (Abu Huraiba Mosque, Temple of Edfu), E£100 (Sultan Hassan Mosque, Sphinx) and E£200 (Mosque of Qani-Bay, The Seated Scribe).

British citizens need a visa to enter Egypt. You can obtain an e-visa from the Egyptian e-visa portal. These visas are valid for up to 90 days, and although it is possible to obtain one when you arrive it is recommended you get one before you travel. Visas obtained on arrival are only valid for up to 30 days and cost around US$25.00. British visitors travelling to Dahab, Sharm el Sheikh, Taba and Nuweiba resorts for up to two weeks receive a free entry permission stamp on arrival. Applications for visa extensions should be made at Egyptian Passport and Immigration Offices.

You may have problems leaving with an out of date visa and you will normally be fined if your visa is out of date by more than 14 days. All visa information can be found on the Egyptian Consulate Website.

Other restrictions you should be aware of include:

  • Passports must be valid for at least six months on entry to the country.
  • Evidence of a previous visit to Israel in your passport does not normally cause any problems when entering Egypt. However, it is for the Egyptian authorities to determine the right of entry into the country.
  • If you apply for a work permit you must have evidence of a HIV test.
  • Some medicines allowed on prescription in the UK are banned or considered controlled substances in Egypt and you could face penalties for trying to import them or bring them into the country. More information on these regulations can be found on the FAQ page of the Egyptian Consulate website.
  • There may be restrictions on the amount of currency you can take in or out of the country. See the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office website for more information.
