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 Pakistani Rupee 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.

Pakistani Rupee rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Pakistani Rupee has dropped by 0.49% from 142.121 on the 20th May to 141.427 today. Back then, £750 would have bought you Rs520.50 more than it would today. During this period the Pakistani Rupee hit a high of 158.127 on the 26th July and a low of 139.019 on the 31st May. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Pakistani Rupee exchange rate history page.

The Pakistani rupee came into circulation in Pakistan after the end of British colonial rule in 1947. To start with, Pakistan used British Indian coins and notes simply stamped with "Pakistan". New coins and banknotes were issued in 1948.

ATM machines are common in Pakistan, but reports say that they are frequently out of order or out of money. If possible you should try to find an ATM inside a bank or atrium where you need to swipe your card to enter as these machines are usually in better condition and are well-stocked.

The PKR was originally divided into 16 annas, each of 4 pice or 12 pie. The currency was decimalised on 1 January 1961, when the rupee was subdivided into 100 pice, renamed paise/paisa later the same year. However, no coins denominated in paise have been issued since 1994.

Technically you should not take Rupees out of Pakistan, but there is very little enforcement of this in practice. There are plenty of opportunities to exchange rupees for Euros or Pounds before leaving Pakistan, but it might be difficult to sell any left-over Rupees when you arrive back here in the UK. Check out our list of currency buy back services for more information.

The GOV.UK website contains more useful information on visiting Pakistan and entry requirements.

In addition you should make sure any medication you take into the country with you is prescribed for you and in its original packaging. You may be asked to present the prescription as proof so you should take this with you too.

Prepaid Pakistani Rupee 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 Pakistan and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
