The Philippines, although not as good value as Thailand and Indonesia, is still a cheap destination for British travellers. The Philippines is the sort of place where you want to take a mix of cash and prepaid cards. Outside of Manila and Cebu you will certainly need cash. Inside the cities you will be able to pay by card in most of the better restaurants and hotels. If you need more cash you can use ATM machines in the cities, but you will not find many in rural regions.
Do not use local money changers as this is one of the most common scams that travellers fall for either being given worthless currency or being massively short changed. If you do need extra cash, take US Dollars and change them at banks such as HSBC and Citibank. According to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) "buying foreign currency in the Philippines can be difficult" so we recommend buying all your currency before you leave the UK.
British passport holders may enter the Philippines for up to 30 days without a visa. You can also apply for a tourist visa from the Philippine Embassy in London before you travel which will allow you up to 59 days initial stay. Overstaying is a serious offence in the Philippines and can lead to fines, detention or deportation but visas can be extended at any time at the local Bureau of Immigration Office.
If you plan on staying for longer then 59 days or would like to work in the Philippines you will need to apply for a residence visa which requires you have certain documentation including your birth certificate to present to the local authorities. Contact the Philippine Embassy for more information.
Over the past week the Philippine Peso has increased by 0.00% from last Wednesday's rate of 59.5089 to today's rate of 59.5100 which means £750 will buy you ₱0.83 more now than it would have a week ago. During this period the best rate we recorded was 59.8104 on Sunday and the worst rate was 59.38 on Thursday.
The 90 day outlook has seen the Philippine Peso rate drop by 0.37% from 59.7308 on 3rd December 2016 to 59.5100 today. Based on these figures, £750 would have bought you ₱165.60 more three months ago that it would have today. We recorded a high rate of 60.03 on 13th December 2016 and a low rate of 57.1022 on 9th January 2017.
