      currency? Officially the Gibraltarian pound is denoted as the pound Sterling and is thus of equal value to the English pound, Scottish pound, Northern Irish pound and the pound currencies of the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Do the banks and credit card companies in the United Kingdom therefore impose foreign usage fees and commission on transactions conducted in Gibraltar using the Gibraltarian pound?

      No, they won’t. They just apply the usual rate.

      I don’t trust Gibraltar one little bit. Its the cess-pit of Europe.

      i would say yes, purely because I lived in Jersey, which had its own notes, but was still considered Sterling, and some banks refused to handle it, in the UK. Although I heard of a woman I worked with who kicked up a fuss in London, and they exchanged the money then.
      I know shops wouldn’t take it , but a bureau de change,swapped it over for English Sterling.
