Iceland awaits. Let’s get your travel money sorted

Whether you're going for the glaciers or the volcanoes, the hot springs or the Northern Lights, there are few places with more spectacular scenery than Iceland.

Despite its name and lying just a few degrees south of the Arctic Circle, it has a surprisingly mild climate too. The warm waters of the Gulf Stream regulate its coastal weather and vary Iceland's average summer temperatures from around 5°C at night to as high as 25°C throughout the day.

You'll warm to the exchange rate we offer you for your Icelandic króna too. We offer our best rates online and if you order your Icelandic travel money now, it can be in your pocket the next working day.

How far does your Icelandic króna go?

  • Iceland is expensive for its citizens, not just visitors, so lots of homeowners in Reykjavik let their properties through Airbnb. While there’s a lot of availability, it may contribute to difficult housing situations for locals so it’s preferred visitors stay in formal accommodation like hotels and hostels or outside of the capital

  • Eating out is considered a treat by the locals. High prices apply to food cooked by someone else, whether that’s a takeaway pizza or a meal in a restaurant

  • Alcohol can only be bought (outside of bars) in state-run off-licences, which are open during office hours. You might need to plan to stock up before heading out

  • Items such as designer clothing are taxed highly and so can be very expensive – so don’t go to Iceland expecting to replenish your wardrobe

  • Renting a car is by far the cheapest way of getting around Iceland

Some common questions

  • Iceland is one of the more popular destinations for UK travellers in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. With its unique geothermal landscape, there are rafts of natural phenomena that travellers can’t see anywhere else on earth.

    The whole country runs on geothermal energy and is, for many, the template of a country that functions well and offers something for everyone. With its rugged, otherworldly landscapes, bewitching culture of ‘hidden folk’, arts in every town and unique cuisine, travellers are guaranteed an experience like no other.

  • The Icelandic króna is the official currency of Iceland.

    The numeric value of króna is quite high, which can make mental arithmetic a little more challenging than, say, US dollars. But once you’ve got your head around it, it’s not too tricky.

    Króna come in coins of 1, 5, 10, 50 and 100. The króna is nominally divided into aurar (cents) however these are no longer accepted tender. However, it is hugely unlikely you would see any.

    Króna notes are 500, 1,000, 2,000, 5,000 and 10,000.

  • The Icelandic króna is only used in Iceland.

  • It’s easy to buy Icelandic króna online using our click and collect service. Or, to buy travel money in-branch, use our branch finder tool to locate those that sell currency.

    With our travel money buy back service you can sell us any leftover notes you have. And we can refund your travel money at the rate you bought it if your trip’s cancelled for a reason beyond your control.

  • Iceland is an increasingly cash-free society and it’s common for locals and visitors to pay for everything using credit cards or debit cards.

    But remember that paying for items using a credit or debit card abroad can come with charges, so if you want to keep costs down, it’s useful to research what charges your provider levies.
