QuestionsMoney-ShoppingThe banks will not accept Northern Ireland money…
Anonymous asked 9 months ago

Anyone travelling to Mauritius from Northern Ireland, do NOT bring Northern Ireland money to exchange as the banks will not accept it. I’ve tried three banks this morning and none of them will accept. They do not recognise Sterling in Northern Irish notes. Fortunately I brought English Money. I did complain to them that this wasn’t right as it’s still Sterling. But NO. 😡

Can’t you put your card into an ATM and draw money?

Tbh most places in England won’t take NI money either! My hubbie is from there and when we visit and accidentally bring some back I have to change it at the bank!!

We had the same with Scottish notes. Luckily we were able to withdraw cash from the ATM.

When you change money at the airport can you use your debit card or do you need to take sterling?

To he fair, many English shops are scared of Irish and Scottish notes too so irs hardly surprising that a country a few thousand miles away is put off.
Not right I know but hey ho

Don’t take Scottish either, they don’t accept those notes also.

Scottish money isn’t legal tender outside of Scotland. The same is probably true for northern Irish
