Easy travel money for your Vietnam vacation

From vibrant cities to secluded beaches, French colonial houses and Chinese temples to skyscrapers, colourful street markets to designer boutiques, Vietnam is a country of contrast.

At Post Office, it’s simple to get your travel money for your trip – online or in branch. With Click & Collect you can order Vietnamese dong online and pick up in any branch as early as the next working day. We can also deliver online orders to your home.

Buy Vietnamese currency online and you could also get a better rate than buying in branch. Buying when the exchange rate favours the pound is another way to save money.

If you bring any banknotes home we’ll buy them back commission-free. Or if your trip’s cancelled, we’ll refund you your holiday money. And with Post Office Travel Insurance to cover your trip, it’s one less thing to check off before you take off.

Get our best Vietnamese dong rates online. The more you buy the better the rate

How far will my money go in Vietnam?

As in many other parts of Asia, street markets are a cheap and interesting alternative to eating in restaurants. Street dishes cost as little as 3,000 or 4,000 VND, but portions are small so you might need more than one to fill you up.

Taxi car rides cost about 10,000 to 15,000 VND – less than 50p – per kilometre. Buses are very cheap but can be uncomfortable and overcrowded, so you might prefer a first-class bus or bus tour. Bike hire costs around 68,000 to 160,700 VND, or about £2-5.

Museums and national parks charge around 15,000 to 40,000 VND for admission. But if you use a guide inside a park you may have to pay much more. Park transport can be expensive too.

You might want to think about getting a Post Office Travel Money Card – a prepaid Mastercard® that can be loaded with currencies – if you’re travelling around Asia and want to avoid carrying large amounts of cash or changing it too often.

  • Hiring a taxi driver for the day to get around and see the sights could cost as little as £5
  • In Hoi An, a three-course meal for two with wine will cost you around £44.42
  • A bottle of water costs around 55p, a coffee about £1.27 and a beer £1.82
