We'll help you to get the best South Korean Won exchange rate

We compare the South Korean Won 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 South Korean Won 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 South Korean Won page to find a local supplier near you.

South Korean Won rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the South Korean Won has increased by 1.07% from 1370.97 on the 20th August to 1385.67 today. This means £750 will buy you ₩11,025.00 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the South Korean Won hit a high of 1451 on the 11th October and a low of 1366.27 on the 28th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our South Korean Won exchange rate history page.

In 2006 it was estimated that nearly half of all the cash in circulation in South Korea was counterfeit. This was such a problem that the currency was withdrawn and new notes issued with all of the copy protection devices that you find on our own notes (holograms, metallic strips, watermark images etc.), but also additional security features that haven't made it into European currencies yet which make the South Korean Won one of the most technologically advanced currencies in the world.

If you wish to change additional currency when you are in South Korea, the best currency to take with you is the US Dollar but you will need to keep all the paperwork such as receipts as you may be asked to prove that you used a licensed money changer. If you want to use a credit or debit card in Southern Korea you should look for ATM machines marked with the Global Brand.

There should be no problem buying Wons here in the UK as they are fairly well-stocked and sold which means competition is decent and some good deals can be found, particularly if you order online. According to our statistics between the 1st of August and 31st October 2017 the average order value for Wons was just under £1200.

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

As a British Citizen you can enter South Korea as a tourist for up to 90 days without a visa. You must also have an onward or return ticket. It’s illegal to work on a tourist visa, whether as a teacher or in any other capacity.

Your passport must be valid for 3 months from the time of entry to South Korea.

Prepaid South Korean Won 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 South Korea and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
