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 make Iceland's average summer temperatures around from 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.

Order online and you'll get a better deal for your Reykjavik money.

The more Icelandic króna you order, the better your rate.

How far does your Icelandic króna go?

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.

Iceland is notoriously expensive and it’s important to remember that its currency is only traded internally. Few banks outside of Iceland keep a stock of it so prices can be high when travelling around.

It’s also expensive for Icelandic citizens, 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. This means that 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
