The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs.

Over the past 90 days, the Egyptian Pound has dropped by 4.80% from 21.5559 on the 23rd May to 20.5205 today. Back then, £750 would have bought you £776.55 more than it would today. During this period the Egyptian Pound hit a high of 22.7745 on the 8th July and a low of 20.3852 on the 28th June. 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 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.
