Britain is one of the largest European countries in terms of people and the economy that is not on the Euro. If you take Euros to the UK you will need to change them in banks.
Britain (or the United Kingdom) is made up of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. English Pounds are used throughout the UK but Scotland and Northern Ireland also issue their own notes. These are legal tender but are generally not accepted in England. We sometimes purchase Scottish or Northern Irish Pounds from customers and will resell these to customers going to Scotland or Northern Ireland, but we cannot order them in for customers. The Republic of Ireland is not part of Britain and uses the Euro.
The Currency Exchange keeps a stock of British Pounds (in a range of denominations) so you don’t usually need to order them in advance, but that can be a good idea if you are after a larger amount or are travelling at a busy time.
ATMs will be available in most cities and in most smaller towns. All ATMs will dispense local currency. For your Cash Passport we recommend loading British Pounds as it is one of the currencies available on the card. You will be able to use your Cash Passport card in all shops – anywhere the MasterCard logo is displayed.
