Peru is a very good value holiday destination and your travel money will go a long way if you are planning on staying there. According to our statistics the average Brit takes over £530 worth of Sols with them when they travel (based upon orders placed between 1st August to 31st October 2013). If you need to exchange more money when you are in Peru then you will find it easy. Look out for local casas de cambio (bureau de change) as they offer the best exchange rates. When exchanging money in Peru you should not accept torn notes as these will sometimes be refused.
Peruvian ATM machines are plentiful, especially in popular tourist destinations and city centres. They accept all major credit and debit cards, but avoid using your UK card as they incur additional costs and consider a prepaid currency card instead. If you do use a card while in Peru it is worth noting that Peruvian cash machines do not always return your card automatically when you have completed your transaction, instead you need to press a button to release and return your card.
There is a real problem with counterfeit local currency and with US Dollars so you should be very careful when you are changing money and receiving change.
British nationals can travel to Peru as a tourist without a visa but if you are planning on staying for longer than six months or are travelling for any purpose other than tourism then you should contact the Peruvian Consulate-General in London before you travel.
Business travellers working in Peru will need to complete a form from the Peruvian Tax Authority on departure.
You should make sure your passport is stamped upon entry to Peru as some travellers have reported problems when leaving the country because their passport had not been stamped. British nationals have also experienced problems trying to enter Peru with more than one laptop so we recommend you familiarise yourself with the latest customs advice from the Peruvian Embassy before you travel.
