Countries that accept Jordanian dinar
The Jordanian dinar (JOD) is the official currency of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, more simply known as Jordan.
The modern dinar comes from the gold dinar, the main coin of the medieval Islamic empires. A few Balkan and Middle Eastern
countries also use the dinar as their currency unit, but you won’t be able to use the Jordanian dinar outside Jordan.
Why visit Jordan?
If you are planning a trip to Jordan you can explore the vast landscape of the Wadi Rum desert or get lost in UNESCO World
Heritage sites like Petra and Quseir Amra. If you’re a foodie with a taste for the Middle East, the streets of Amman are the
place to be.
Whatever you plan to do in Jordan, make sure you bring enough Jordanian dinar for your trip. Jordan isn’t a budget-friendly
destination, and little things like food and drink can quickly add up.
To help you plan, you can use our currency converter to find out how much Jordanian dinar your
money will buy.
What is the history of Jordanian dinars?
The Jordanian dinar was introduced in 1949, replacing the Palestinian pound. The Jordanian dinar was originally pegged to the
British pound, but was later changed to the US dollar in 1995.

For orders placed via Click & Collect, there is a minimum £150 order and maximum of £2,500. For Bureau de Change walk
ups, there is no minimum order.
Can I use Jordanian dinars outside of Jordan?
The Jordanian dinar is the only official currency of Jordan.
If you’re travelling outside of Jordan, you should exchange your Jordanian dinars for the local currency of your
destination. Having the appropriate currency means you’ll always have a way to pay for your travel expenses.
What are the accepted payment methods for purchasing Jordanian dinars?
You can use a credit card or debit card to purchase travel money through our Click & Collect service. However, if you
are using a credit card please check with your card provider as they may apply fees or charges e.g. cash advance fees
or other fees. There is a £150 minimum threshold for all orders placed through the Click & Collect service.
Our Bureaux accept cash (GBP) and the majority of UK issued major credit cards and debit cards. For Bureau de Change
walk ups, there is no minimum order.
Can I order Jordanian dinars online and have them delivered to me?
M&S Bank offer a Click & Collect service to order Jordanian dinar online. With our Click and Collect service you can
choose your collection date and collect from your local Bureau de Change.
Are there any local businesses that only accept Jordanian dinars, or can I
use other currencies as well?
Some establishments, like hotels and larger businesses, may accept the US dollar (USD)
and euros (EUR) alongside the Jordanian dinar. This is less common in rural areas, so you
should always bring local currency if you’re staying outside of major tourist areas.
What is the latest government travel advice for Jordan?
While Jordan has less British tourists than neighbouring Turkiye and the UAE, most visits are safe and
Jordan is an Islamic country with religious customs. During Ramadan, many Jordanians will be fasting from morning
until sunset. Out of respect, you should avoid eating or drinking in public spaces during these daylight hours.
Jordan isn’t cheap and healthcare isn’t free. Make sure you have travel insurance before you go so you aren’t out of
pocket if the unexpected happens.
