Many international banks have branches in Kenya. Please ask you bank for further information on withdrawing money from Kenya before you come

Credit cards

All major credit cards are accepted in Kenya. However  you are advised to carry small amounts of cash  travelling  to cater for two days  because sometimes the banks are off line

Travellers cheques

Most places no longer accept travellers cheques


It is advisable to change money to use for buying things locally Kenya. Most places dealing with tourist will take dollars, Euros and other major currencies however you will not get good rates. It is better to change money in banks which are everywhere and open up to 4.00p.m.Daily rates are available in the newspapers.


You may register with Mpesa on arrival. All you need to go to a safaricom shop available in the major supermarket or the airport. You can then credit the phone with money which you can use directly or change to real money. Even if you loose your phone your money is safe and you simply get a new number. You can carry up to 100,000 in your Mpesa and top up anywhere even the most remote places or if you have a local bank account you can access your money there.

Personal cheques are not usually honoured unless you are known to the vendor.
