Belfast Currency Guide


The currency used in Belfast is the British Pound.


ATMs are conveniently located throughout the city of Belfast. They are usually attached to walls in well-lit public areas as well as within large shops, banks and service stations that sit on major roads. To withdraw money in Belfast, don't forget to tell your bank your travel dates. International ATM fees for credit and bank cards can also be expensive, so check with your bank before you go. When travelling out of the city, ATMs may become scarce, although facilities can still be found at most service stations, post offices and village centres.


It's always a good idea to carry some cash with you while travelling. Pre-purchase Pounds from Travel Money Oz before you fly and avoid paying fees and commissions.

Travel Cards

Don't have a credit card? For safe spending overseas, consider taking a prepaid Multi-currency Cash Passport™ on your Belfast holiday. Cash Passports allow you to load British Pounds and other currencies onto the card, which you can then access at various ATMS and use wherever MasterCard® is accepted. Your Multi-currency Cash Passport card has both a security pin and signature required for safe spending.
