We compare the Ukrainian Hryvnia 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 Ukrainian Hryvnia 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 Ukrainian Hryvnia page to find a local supplier near you.

The Ukrainian Hryvnia is pegged to the US Dollar at a rate of 8 UAH = $1 USD. It is not particularly easy to find currency provider that will provide Ukrainian Hryvnia here in the UK, which means competition is weak and the best deals can be hard to come by. Generally speaking it is better to buy Hryvnias through an online currency supplier rather than at a bank or airport as they offer the most competitive rates.
There are many currency exchange kiosks and US Dollars, Euros and Sterling can be cashed there at some banks. You should only use official exchange offices. To change money you will need to present your passport when you place your order and you should make sure you are given a receipt. You must keep this receipt as you may need to produce it if you want to exchange money back on departure.
US Dollars are accepted in Ukraine for certain purchases such as air tickets if you wish to fly on to another destination, but the best option is to use a prepaid currency card as these are accepted all over the country and can be easier and more flexible than taking multiple currencies and can be converted back into Sterling on your return. ATM machines are common in all but the smallest of villages.
As always you should take precautions to keep your money safe. You should avoid getting lured into situations where you may take your wallet out in the street.
Before you travel to Ukraine you can get advice from the UK Government website
British citizens are may enter Ukraine without a visa for up to 90 days within a 180 day period. You may be asked to provide proof that you have sufficient funds to support you during your stay. Types of evidence that may be suitable are: cash, bank statements or other financial documents, credit cards, accommodation bookings, tourist vouchers, a letter from the person or company you’re visiting stating that they will cover your expenses or a return or onward travel booking. Further information can be found on the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and State Border Service of Ukraine.
If you’re travelling without a visa, your passport should be valid for the entire duration of your stay.
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 Ukraine and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
We compare travel insurance quotes to Ukraine and other worldwide destinations, but you don't need to tell us your life story to get covered. In fact, we don't even ask for your name or email address, so you can be sure we won't bombard you with endless junk mail after requesting a quote.
