ATMs are widely available in banks and cash in Kenyan shilling can be withdrawn.
The best and most reliable is Barclays Bank with its large network of ATMs that support MasterCard, Visa, Plus and Cirrus.
US dollar, British pound and the euro are easy to change throughout the country, although, outside from city centers US dollar is the safest currency in terms of availability to exchange.
The best places to change money are foreign exchange or ‘forex’ bureaus, which can be found everywhere and usually don’t charge commission.
Credit cards are widely accepted - at least Visa, American Express and MasterCard.
Traveler checks are less widely accepted, and often carry high commission charges. The best option is to have them either in US dollars or British pounds.
Banking Hours: Mon-Fri 9:00am - 3:00pm, Sat 9:00am - 11:00am. Banks in Mombasa and the coastal areas open and close half an hour earlier. The banks at the international airports open 24 hours every day. Bureaux de change have longer hours and in the cities open on Sunday.
