Over the past 90 days, the Indian Rupee has increased by 4.40% from 85.5585 on the 22nd July to 89.3260 today. This means £750 will buy you ₹2,825.63 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Indian Rupee hit a high of 91.6235 on the 11th October and a low of 83.2764 on the 6th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Indian Rupee exchange rate history page.
The Indian Rupee is the official currency of India but can also be used in Nepal and Bhutan. The Rupee is widely stocked by bureau de change in the UK but to get the best rates it is best to order them online.
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 you can sell any left-over Rupees when you arrive back here in the UK. Check out our list of currency buy back services for more information.
Before you travel to India you can get advice from the UK Government website
You need a visa to enter India and you must make sure you apply for the correct one depending on your reason for visiting the country.
In addition you should make sure any medication you take into the country with you is prescribed for you and in its original packaging. You may be asked to present the prescription as proof so you should take this with you too.
Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in India and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
We compare travel insurance quotes to India and other worldwide destinations, but you don't need to tell us your life story to get covered. In fact, we don't even ask for your name or email address, so you can be sure we won't bombard you with endless junk mail after requesting a quote.
If you need Indian Rupees in a hurry or don't want to wait in for home delivery, our Click & Collect service can search for Indian Rupee suppliers near you. Reserve and buy online and collect in-store at a time that's convenient for you.
If you need to send Indian Rupees overseas or receive funds from a bank account in India, you may be better off using the services of a specialist foreign exchange broker.
