We'll help you to get the best Kenyan Shilling exchange rate

We compare the Kenyan Shilling 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 Kenyan Shilling 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 Kenyan Shillings page to find a local supplier near you.

Kenyan Shilling rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Kenyan Shilling has increased by 0.14% from 126.826 on the 22nd July to 127.002 today. This means £750 will buy you KSh132.00 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Kenyan Shilling hit a high of 128.902 on the 12th October and a low of 122.708 on the 15th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Kenyan Shilling exchange rate history page.

The currencies accepted in Kenya depend on where you are visiting. Costal, tourist and city locations (for example Nairobi and Mombasa) usually accept Pounds Sterling, US Dollars and Euros as well as Shillings, but inland areas away from popular destinations still only accept the local currency. You will always get a better price when paying in Shillings, regardless of your location.

A recent change in Kenyan law has ruled street money traders illegal, so you will not find many around. If you do come across one, you should avoid using their services as they are most likely involved in some sort of criminal activity.

Paying by card can also be difficult. Many shops and hotels still use manual machines and paper chits that are easy for fraudsters to copy. Where electronic payments are available the connections can be very intermittent meaning that payments fail or may not be available for hours or days at a time, so taking cash is usually the best option.

The Kenya Tourism Federation operate a safety and communication centre which gives up to the minute advice on tourist and travel matters and road conditions as well as providing help in an emergency.

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

As a British national you will need a visa to enter Kenya. You can obtain one from the airport on arrival (at a cost of around £30) or from the Kenya High Commission in London.

It you are planning on living and working in Kenya you must obtain a work permit from the Kenyan High Commission before you travel. This process is notorious for delays so it is a good idea to apply well in advance.

Prepaid Kenyan Shilling 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 Kenya and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
