Is there anywhere i can exchange pounds to Kenyan shillings before i go to Kenya?
Lots of places.....but you will probably need to order it in advance. I usually get mine from Sainsburys. Just because its convenient for me. It takes acouple of days.
You will get a lot better rate changing in the kenyan banks but not in your hotel
Ok,thanks for the replys,as we are staying in an all inclusive resort when we get there we only require kes for tips/souvenirs so might be best ordering now?(travelling April next year).
Maybe order just before you come.......just in case things do kick off after the elections and the Foreign Office change their travel advice.
Hopefully if anything happens during the elections in march it would have finished by time we fly on 26th April.
I'm there April 4th and keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed.
Marks and Sparks.
Ace-FX are good if you have one near you
Hi - as tembo suggested Marks & sparks - I know the bigger one in Manchester they always have them in stock, so no ordering required, I just keep an eye on the rates, then go & get what I need the same day.
I therefore assume your nearest M & S that has an exchange counter, will also have them in stock - maybe worth giving them a ring.
Thanks for the heads up on m&s-will check them out nearer the time!
