To find the best GBP to HKD, or pounds to Hong Kong dollar deal, you need to check:

  • The exchange rate: This will tell you how many Hong Kong dollars you get for each pound you exchange. The higher the Hong Kong exchange rate, the more you will get for your money.

  • The delivery charge: If you want to buy your Hong Kong dollars online, you could have the option to get the currency delivered to you. This often costs you a fixed fee, so factor it in when comparing the cost of exchanging.

You may also have the option to buy Hong Kong dollars online to pick up at the airport through some providers, letting you avoid any delivery charges.

Do you have to pay for delivery?

Not always, some providers may have a branch near you, giving you the option to pick up your travel money in person.

This lets you avoid delivery charges, but providers who offer this service may only let you reserve a rate online.

Reserving a rate online does not guarantee it forever, as you are usually given a time limit to use the rate before it expires, for example 24 hours.
