Scotland Currency Guide


Scotland uses the British Pound.


In Scotland, ATMs or cashpoints are found everywhere in the larger cities, but in smaller villages and towns you’ll generally only find one or two. Cashpoint machines accept most major credit cards, but don't forget to check with your bank or credit card company before you go for security purposes and to see what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.


It’s always a good idea to carry some cash with you when you arrive in Scotland. Pre-purchase Pounds before you fly at Travel Money Oz to avoid paying fees and commissions. If you need to exchange money in Scotland, you’ll find foreign exchange counters at Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen airports and in the city centres.

Travel Card

Don't have a credit card? For safe spending while you travel, consider taking a pre-paid travel money card with you on your Scottish holiday. Available from Travel Money Oz, Cash Passports allow you to load British Pounds and other currencies onto the card, which you can then access like a debit card at various ATMs and also use wherever MasterCard is accepted.
