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.
Over the past 90 days, the Egyptian Pound has dropped by 3.28% from 21.0402 on the 16th September to 20.3499 today. Back then, £750 would have bought you E£517.72 more than it would today. During this period the Egyptian Pound hit a high of 21.2548 on the 11th October and a low of 20.118 on the 12th December. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Egyptian Pound exchange rate history page.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
Yes, we have a section of our website dedicated to currency buybacks: Exchange Egyptian Pounds for Pounds Sterling.
Yes, we can facilitate the transfer of currency into an overseas bank account; see our Money Transfers page for more information.
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 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.
We compare travel insurance quotes to Egypt 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 Egyptian Pounds in a hurry or don't want to wait in for home delivery, our Click & Collect service can search for Egyptian Pound suppliers near you. Reserve and buy online and collect in-store at a time that's convenient for you.
If you need to send Egyptian Pounds overseas or receive funds from a bank account in Egypt, you may be better off using the services of a specialist foreign exchange broker.
