Indian Rupee Currency Guide

Right now the FCO are advising against all travel to some parts of India and all but essential travel to other areas. You should check that your destination is not covered by this advice and that your travel insurance is still valid if you intend travelling to India in the near future.

The Indian Rupee is the official currency of India but can also be used in Nepal and Bhutan. The average traveller takes about £630 (about 58,000 INR) of Indian Rupees with them to India, but the Rupee is not widely stocked by bureaux de change in the UK so it is best to order them online.

…out of order or out of money.

ATM machines are common in India, but reports say that they are frequently out of order or out of money. If possible you should try to find an ATM inside a bank or atrium where you need to swipe your card to enter as these machines are usually in better condition and are well-stocked.

The 1,000 INR note is hard to break outside of banks. You should avoid these when buying your currency. Technically you should not take Rupees out of India, but there is very little enforcement of this in practice. There are plenty of opportunities to exchange rupees for Euros or Pounds before leaving India, but it might be difficult to find a buy back service here in the UK.
