Es conveniente que usted compruebe si tiene billetes de libras escocesas. Escocia imprime sus propios billetes así como Irlanda del Norte. Estos billetes de libras escocesas o irlandesas circulan sin problemas en Escocia e Irlanda pero muchas veces no son aceptados en Inglaterra y no operan a nivel de bancos internacionales. Es decir, los billetes que le sobren de libras escocesas o irlandesas no podrá cambiarlos en bancos ubicados fuera del Reino Unido. Sugerimos que compruebe que no le sobren billetes al salir de Escocia o tras su paso por Belfast.
