Money and budget Channel Islands
Jersey issues the Jersey book, while Guernsey hits the Guernsey pound. These two currencies have the same value and the same rate as the pound sterling, which is also accepted.
In January 2020, the exchange rate for the British pound is as follows: € 1 = £ 0,85 and £ 1 = € 1,20.
Jersey books are often accepted in Guernsey, but conversely, Guernsey books are rarely accepted in Jersey. In Alderney, the pound sterling is most often used.
The euro is rarely accepted in Normandy, and when it is, change is given in pounds.
The Jersey pound and the Guernsey pound cannot be used or exchanged on the continent.
