Should I exchange money before heading to Pakistan?

Absolutely, exchanging some money beforehand is wise. With Pakistani rupees in hand, you’re ready for immediate expenses upon arrival, like transport and meals.

What is the best currency to take to Pakistan?

The Pakistani rupee is the way to go. It’s the official currency and what you’ll use day-to-day. 

While some places might accept US dollars, you’ll likely face poorer exchange rates. Stick to Pakistani rupees for a smooth trip.

Don’t forget, if you’ve got leftover travel money, convert your remaining Pakistani rupees to GBP with us.

Can you pay by card in Pakistan?

Card acceptance varies, and Pakistan is primarily a cash-based country. Big hotels and shopping centres in cities like Lahore and Karachi might accept cards, but many local shops don’t. 

Where it is possible to use cards, Pakistan is moving towards contactless payments for small purchases. But for anything substantial, you might need your PIN.

Be mindful of conversion fees from your bank. It’s worth checking in with them before using your card abroad to avoid surprises.

Carrying cash in Pakistan is essential. From local bazaars to taxis, cash is king. You’ll find it invaluable for daily expenses, tips, and small purchases.

How much money should I bring to Pakistan?

Pakistan offers a range of experiences, and your budget will depend on your travel style. Cities can be pricier, while rural areas offer a more cost-effective stay.

Budget travel

Around 5,000 to 7,000 Pakistani rupees a day (£20-£30) should cover budget accommodation, meals, and transport.

Mid-range comfort

Consider about 10,000 to 15,000 Pakistani rupees daily (£40-£60) for more comfort. This covers nicer meals and some activities.


30,000 to 40,000 Pakistani rupees daily (£120-£160) will get you top-notch hotels and experiences.

How to avoid ATM fees in Pakistan

To avoid ATM fees:

  • Use ATMs from reputable banks like HBL or MCB for fewer fees.
  • Withdraw larger sums less often to cut down on fees.
  • Check with your bank for partner banks in Pakistan that offer free withdrawals.

Is Pakistan safe for tourists?

While there are areas of concern, many parts of Pakistan welcome tourists. Stay updated on local news and be mindful in crowded places.

Yes, most travellers need a visa to enter Pakistan. The type of visa and the application process can vary depending on your nationality, the purpose of your visit, and how long you plan to stay.

It’s always best to check the latest visa requirements. You can do this with your country’s Pakistani embassy or consulate before planning your trip. They can provide the most up-to-date information and guidance on how to apply for a visa.

Before heading to Pakistan, you must ensure you’re up to date with certain vaccinations for your safety. 

Start with routine vaccines, including MMR, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, chickenpox, polio, and the annual flu shot. 

Hepatitis A and Typhoid vaccines are recommended because of contaminated food or water risks. Particularly if you’re venturing into smaller towns or rural areas. 

Hepatitis B vaccination is advised for those who may come into contact with blood or body fluids. 

Pakistan is one of the few countries where polio is still a risk. So a polio vaccine update might be necessary. 

Rabies vaccination is suggested for travellers planning to engage with animals or spend a lot of time outdoors. 

Although there’s no vaccine for malaria, taking prophylactic medication is recommended in areas with malaria risk. 

Always consult a doctor well before your trip to ensure you have the necessary protection.

The best time to visit Pakistan largely depends on the region you plan to explore. Generally, the most favourable months are from October to April. The weather is relatively cooler and more pleasant during these months, making it ideal for sightseeing and outdoor activities.

  • In the northern mountainous regions, including places like Gilgit-Baltistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the summer months from May to September are also great for visiting. Especially if you’re interested in trekking and mountain expeditions. This is when the snow has melted, and the mountain passes are accessible.
  • For the southern parts of Pakistan, including cities like Karachi and Lahore, the cooler months from November to February offer a more comfortable climate, as temperatures in the summer can be pretty high.

It’s also worth considering the timing of various cultural and religious festivals in Pakistan. These can offer a deeper insight into the country’s rich heritage and traditions. 

However, booking your travel and accommodations in advance is essential, as these periods can also be peak tourist seasons.

Travelling to Pakistan can be an enriching experience, thanks to its diverse landscapes, rich history, and warm hospitality. Here are 10 things to know before you go:

  1. Visa requirements: Most travellers need a visa to enter Pakistan. Check the specific requirements for your nationality and apply well in advance.
  2. Vaccinations: Ensure you’re up to date on recommended vaccinations, including Hepatitis A, Typhoid, and Polio. Consult a travel health clinic before your trip.
  3. Cultural Sensitivity: Pakistan is a predominantly Muslim country, so it’s important to dress modestly and respect local customs and religious practices, especially during Ramadan.
  4. Security situation: Stay informed about the security situation and follow travel advisories. Certain areas, particularly near borders, might have restrictions.
  5. Language: Urdu is the national language, but English is widely understood in major cities and tourist spots. Learning a few basic Urdu phrases can be helpful.
  6. Currency: The Pakistani Rupee (PKR) is the local currency. It’s wise to have cash on hand, especially in rural or remote areas, as card payments may not always be accepted.
  7. Transportation: Pakistan has various transport options, including buses, trains, and domestic flights. Hiring a local driver or guide can enhance your experience and navigation.
  8. Diverse climate: Pakistan’s climate varies significantly from north to south. Pack accordingly, especially if you plan to visit both the mountainous regions and the southern plains.
  9. Hospitality: Pakistanis are known for their hospitality. Don’t be surprised by generous offers of tea or invitations to local homes.
  10. Food: Pakistani cuisine is rich and varied, focusing on meat, rice, and bread. Street food is a must-try, but be cautious of water and raw foods to avoid stomach upsets.

Every trip is unique, and being open and respectful can lead to a truly memorable Pakistani adventure.
