Credit cards:

MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club and Visa are widely accepted. Check with your credit card company for details of merchant acceptability and other services which may be available.

Travelers cheques:

To avoid additional exchange rate charges, travelers are advised to take travelers cheques in US Dollars or Pounds Sterling.

Currency Restrictions:

The import or export of local currency is limited to E£1000. There are no restrictions on the import or export of foreign currency as long as it is declared in an official customs form.

Banking Hours:

The banking hours are Sunday to Thursday, 8.30 am to 5 pm.

Please don't bring Scottish pounds, Irish punts, and New Zealand dollars etc. as they are not accepted here!

If you at any point during your tour, you run out of money, and your credit cards are not being accepted, you still can get money wired to you from abroad. In Egypt, there are plenty of Western Union branches; it takes just a few minutes to get any sum of money sent you from abroad.

TIP: Don’t change your $, £ or Euro until you arrive in Egypt – the conversion rate is far better here.
