The Icelandic Krona is not accepted anywhere other than Iceland. Changing money once you are there may incur commissions of up to 8.75% as well as poor exchange rates, so buying in advance is usually more profitable. Buying Icelandic Krona here in the UK should be no problem as it is stocked by a wide range of providers from supermarkets to banks. The best rates are offered by the larger online bureau de change offering up to 15 Krona to the pound more than the high street competition. You may need to inform your bank that you are intending to travel to Iceland so they can enable your cards for use. Otherwise you may find you cannot use UK cards in local chip and pin machine and ATMs.
According to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), hotel accommodation in Iceland is often fully booked during the summer. If you travel on flight only tickets you must ensure that all your accommodation has been reserved before departure.
You can change unused Krona back into sterling using our currency buyback service here in the UK, or over the counter when you are in Iceland. According to our data the average visitor takes £733 (97,551.31ISK as of Sunday 26th of March 2017 and based on the data from 1st of July to 30st of September, 2016), this is more than double the £300 value we saw 1st August and 31st October 2013. You should budget about 20,000 ISK per day for a stay in Iceland.
British passport holders can visit Iceland for up to three months without a visa. If you intend on staying for longer than this you must apply for a residence/work permit from the Icelandic Directorate of Immigration.
