London Currency Guide


The currency used in London is British Pounds.


ATMs are conveniently located all throughout the city of London outside banks, on high streets, in shopping centres and transport hubs. To withdraw money in London, don't forget to tell your bank your travel dates. International ATM withdrawal fees for Australian bankcards can also be expensive, so check with your bank before you go.


It's always essential to carry some cash with you while travelling. Pre-purchase British pounds from Travel Money Oz before you fly and avoid paying fees and commissions.

Travel Card

If you don't have a credit card, for safe spending while overseas consider taking a prepaid travel money card with you on your London holiday. A Multi-currency Cash Passport™ allows you to use your own cash to pre-load British Pounds (and other major currencies like Euros) onto the card, which you can then access at various ATMS and use wherever MasterCard® is accepted.
