England Currency Guide
England uses the British Pound.
Automatic teller machines are commonly referred to as cash machines in England and are easily spotted in cities, major suburbs and even tiny townships. Be on the lookout for card readers and don’t use an ATM if you believe it looks suspicious. Instead, pay with a debit or credit card where possible.
Keeping a stash of local currency is always a good idea. You can swap your Australian Dollars into British Pounds at Travel Money Oz before you leave. Changing money in England shouldn’t be problematic, but be aware of the rates and extras at bureaus. If you’re after a smart, commission-free choice, try an English post office.
Don’t feel safe carting around your credit or debit cards? A prepaid travel money card can save you a world of pain, both at the exchange gate and in unexpected situations. A Multi-currency Cash Passport™ allows savvy travellers to load British Pounds and other currencies onto the card for direct access overseas. Use the Multi-currency Cash Passport as a debit card, at ATMs and wherever MasterCard® is accepted.
