How do I buy Indian rupees?

Using our comparison form at the top of the page, enter the amount of Indian rupees you want to buy, select your preferred payment method(s) and click 'Compare Deals'. We'll return a list of UK currency suppliers who are selling Indian rupees right now along with their latest exchange rates and delivery information. The results are sorted in order of who is offering the most Indian rupees after all fees and delivery charges have been added which means the best deals are always at the top of the table. Choose the supplier you want to order with and follow the link to their website where you can place your order with them directly.

When is the best time to buy Indian rupees?

It is impossible for us to predict the best time to buy Indian rupees. We provide some historical exchange rate data in the chart above so you can see the overall trend, but beyond that we cannot offer any advice on when to buy. Our advice is to not worry too much about trying to perfectly time the market. Unless you are buying tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of currency, the daily changes in exchange rates do not make a huge difference to the amount of currency you'll receive.

Can I collect my Indian rupees in person?

Yes, some currency suppliers do allow you to collect Indian rupees from them in person. We have a dedicated Click & Collect page where you can find the nearest supplier in your area. If you plan on collecting in person, we recommend ordering or reserving your Indian rupees online first on the supplier's website to guarantee the exchange rate. Some suppliers offer lower exchange rates if you walk in off the street, but you can usually order online in advance and collect your currency in store at the better online rate.

How long does Delivery take?

Most currency suppliers will dispatch your order on the same or next working day after they receive your payment, and all orders are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. However, just in case any unexpected delays crop up we recommend ordering no later than 3 working days before you are due to travel. If you've left it too late for home delivery, check out our Click & Collect page to find a local Indian rupee supplier near you. We cover most UK airports, so in the worst case scenario you can reserve your currency online (at the better online rate) and pick it up from the departure lounge before you fly.

Do I have to be at home when my currency is delivered?

No. All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. Somebody at your address will need to sign for the package but if nobody is home when the postman attempts to deliver, they'll leave a missed delivery card and you can either collect the package from your nearest sorting office or arrange for it to be re-delivered on a more convenient day.

Can I have my Indian rupees sent to a different address?

Generally, no. This is ultimately at the discretion of the currency supplier, but most suppliers will only deliver to the home address of the person paying for the currency (i.e. the card or bank account holder's address). This is for security reasons because a signature is required when the currency is delivered, and signatures from work or other addresses can be unreliable and difficult to prove.

What happens if the package goes missing during delivery?

All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. This type of postage is more secure than standard post and is meant specifically for high-value and important items because tracking is enabled by default and a signature is required as proof of delivery. It is very rare for a Special Delivery package to go missing, but in the unlikely event that it does you will be completely reimbursed by Royal Mail for the full value of the currency and the cost of postage.

What payment method should I use?

The payment method you choose is important because it affects whether or not you pay any extra fees during checkout, and also whether you are financially protected in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the supplier. We have written a more detailed guide about choosing a payment method on our blog: A guide to payment methods.

Are there any limits on the amount of Indian rupees I can order?

Most, but not all, currency suppliers have a minimum and a maximum amount you can order from them, however we automatically factor these into our comparisons so if you tell us exactly how much you want to spend we'll only return suppliers that can fulfill your request. Most suppliers also have a minimum amount that you can order from them to qualify for free home delivery; if you order less than this amount you can still get your order delivered by you'll have to pay for postage. Again, we automatically factor these charges into our comparisons so you don't need to worry about any hidden costs during checkout.

Is ordering online safe and secure?

All of the currency suppliers we compare use SSL encryption as standard on their ordering pages. This means that when you place an order, a secure connection is created between you and the supplier and your personal and payment details are transmitted using the same level of encryption as online banking.

Am I financially protected if something goes wrong with the supplier?

The level of financial protection you receive is determined by the payment method you choose. For more information see our FAQ above: What payment method should I use?

What checks does Compare Holiday Money carry out on the listed suppliers?

All currency suppliers are required to complete a comprehensive onboarding questionnaire before we list them on the Compare Holiday Money website. This questionnaire provides us with information on the supplier's background, financial history, directors and technical capabilities, as well as document any legal and regulatory requirements the supplier may have. Our compliance team verify the answers by cross-referencing them with various online registers such as Companies House, the Supervised Business Register and the Financial Conduct Authority, and we then make a decision as to whether to list them. Once a supplier has been listed we run regular audits to check the ongoing status and accuracy of the information provided, and if any issues are flagged up we immediately suspend the listing until the supplier corrects the issue or provides us with clarification. Despite these stringent checks, we cannot guarantee the solvency of any suppliers who appear on the Compare Holiday Money website and we urge all customers to conduct their own research before transacting with a company.

Do I need to provide ID or other documents?

It depends. You may need to provide some ID, typically a copy of your passport or driver's licence, depending on how much currency you are ordering. Most suppliers won't ask for ID if you're ordering less than £1,000 but most will if you're ordering £2,500 or more. If you're ordering £10,000 or more you may need to provide additional information on the source of the funds. The exact requirements vary from supplier to supplier, but they will make it clear what form(s) of ID and other documents they require before you place an order.

Can I sell back any unused Indian rupees?

Yes, we have a section of our website dedicated to currency buybacks: Exchange Indian rupees for pounds sterling.

Can I send money to a bank account in India instead?

Yes, we can facilitate the transfer of currency into an overseas bank account; see our Money Transfers page for more information.

The Indian rupee is the official currency of the Republic of India, and the unofficial currency of Bhutan, Nepal and Zimbabwe. The Indian rupee currency code is INR and it's symbol is ₹. The current ₹500 and ₹1000 banknotes have been in circulation since 2016 after the Indian Government announced at short notice that the old notes would no longer be valid. Since then, ₹100 and ₹200 notes have also been added to circulation. The name 'rupee' is derived from the Hindustani word 'rupaya' which means a 'coin of silver'. The Bhutanese ngultrum and Nepalese rupee are both pegged to the Indian rupee at ratios of 1:₹1 and 1:₹0.625 respectively. Most (but not all) Indian rupee banknotes are accepted in Bhutan and Nepal so it is wise to check or take some local currency with you if you want to visit these countries.

Indian banknotes are regulated by the Reserve Bank of India and are printed at the Bank Note Press in Dewas, the Bharatiya Reserve at Salboni and Mysore, the Currency Note Press in Nashik, and at the Watermark Paper Mill in Hoshangabad. The Mahatma Gandhi Series of banknotes are issued by the central bank as legal tender but may not be accepted in Nepal or Bhutan. Coins are minted by the Indian government in five different mints across India at Mumbai, Alipore, Saifabad, Cherlapally and New Okhla (Delhi).

All current banknotes feature Mahatma Gandhi and are known as the Mahatma Gandhi Series. The reverse side of each noye features famous Indian buildings and other significant Indian cultural symbols. One rupee can be sub-divided into 100 paise and are issued in denominations of ₹5 (featuring a tractor), ₹10 (Konark Sun Temple), ₹20 (Mount Harriet), ₹50 (Hampi with Chariot), ₹100 (Rani ki Vav), ₹200 (Sanchi Stupa), ₹500 (Red Fort) and ₹2000 (Mangalyaan - the Indian Mars orbiter). Indian rupee coins all feature the Emblem of India on one side and are minted in denominations of ₹1, ₹2, ₹5, ₹10.

British Citizens need a visa to enter India and it is important that you obtain the right one. If you have the wrong visa or you overstay your visa then the penalties can be severe. All information on visas can be found on the Indian High Commission website, and up to date information and advice on entry to India can be found on the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office website. All applicants of Pakistani descent who hold dual nationality must apply for an Indian visa on their Pakistan passport. Processing times can be a lot longer and further documentary evidence may be needed, details of which can be found on the Indian High Commission website.

When travelling to India, you should also be aware:

  • Your passport must be machine readable or you will not be granted entry. You should have a minimum of 180 days left on your passport on arrival.
  • There is an airport tax payable on entry of around ₹1000. This should be included in your airfare or holiday costs but it is worth checking if you are unsure otherwise you will have to pay this on arrival.
  • If you visit India via Pakistan, Israel, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya, Somalia or Afghanistan you may be required to hold a valid polio vaccination certificate.
  • You should check vaccination requirements particularly for Yellow fever by visiting the Travel Health Pro Website.
  • Your accommodation should be licensed with the Indian authorities. Ask your accommodation provider if they are registered to file 'C-Forms' with the Foreigners' Registration Office (FRO).
