Sell South African Rand Online

Travelling to South Africa is a trip of a lifetime for many people and a long haul holiday which most people will only ever do once. If you return from your holiday in South Africa with South African Rand left over there are plenty of online currency suppliers whom will change back your South African Rand at great competitive buy back exchange rates in the UK.

In 2012 the South African Reserve Bank introduced new bank notes featuring Nelson Mandela and although there have been no reports of removing the old South African Rand notes from circulation, if you do have any and you do not plan on going back to South Africa for some time then we would advise selling them back as soon as possible.

Previously to 2012 the old South African R200 rand bank note without the image of Nelson Mandela was fraudulently counterfeited and there are apparently many of these still in circulation. As a result we would advise avoiding taking these with you to South Africa and to avoid accepting any of the old South African R200 bank notes whilst on holiday in South Africa to ensure you can easily sell these back if either unspent or if they are unwanted on your return to the UK.

The best South African Rand buy back rates can always be found online and the worst rates are usually offered by the banks and travel agents. Use our unique comparison table above to help you find the best South African Rand buy back deals and see how much you could save by selling online compared to the high street.
