The Euro rates below were last updated 3 minutes ago
Lithuania joined the Euro on 1 January 2015. If you are travelling to Lithuania, you'll need to buy Euros instead.
If you're travelling to Lithuania soon you'll want to get the best deal on your Lithuanian Litas. Our free comparison service compares the best Lithuanian Lita rates from the biggest currency suppliers in the UK so you can see at a glance who is offering the top deals. We are currently comparing 19 suppliers selling Lithuanian Litas in the UK with exchange rates ranging from 1.1000 to 1.1372.
But wait, it gets better! Many of the top suppliers listed above offer us exclusive exchange rates that are better than any other website which means if you order through us you could save even more money. We are so confident that you won't find better Lithuanian Lita exchange rates on any other UK website that we challenge you to let us know if you find a better deal!
The Lithuanian Lita is pegged to the Euro exchange rate as part of the ERM II agreement which forms a precursor to joining the Euro. Lithuania was scheduled to join the single currency on January 1st 2010, but this was postponed until January 2015 due to the Eurozone and banking crisis. Due to this change we advise any travellers with leftover currency to take advantage of our currency buy back service to sell any unwanted Litas before they become worthless.
Our statistics show that the average UK traveller to Lithuania takes about £750 worth of Litas with them; with the online bureau de change giving the best rates of exchange. Many currency houses in the UK stock Litas, so competition is strong and this can lead to some great deals from some suppliers.
Crime is a real problem in Lithuania and the capital Vilnius and the following is quoted from the Vilnius Police website on how to stay safe (I particularly like the last sentence!).
Crime is rampant in Lithuania, consequently having little if no effect on the average visitor. Crimes closer to home include such petty annoyances as having bits of your car stolen to the inevitable disappearing purses and mobile phones. Don't leave valuables in unattended pockets or lying around on tables. The chances of getting robbed in the street remain tiny. However, caution never did anybody any harm, and you're advised not to flaunt your wallet in stupid places or announce to the entire world your huge wealth by wearing loud jewellery in quiet back streets. Walk tall, look like you know what you're doing, and you won't be troubled.
If you hold a British passport you do not need a visa to enter Lithuania and can stay for up to three months. If you would like to stay for longer than this you should contact the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in London and apply for a residence permit from the Migration Department.
Over the past week the Euro has increased by 0.11% from last Thursday's rate of 1.1359 to today's rate of 1.1372 which means £750 will buy you €0.98 more now than it would have a week ago. During this period the best rate we recorded was 1.144 on Tuesday and the worst rate was 1.121 on Monday.
The 90 day outlook has seen the Euro rate increase by 2.45% from 1.11 on 8th November 2016 to 1.1372 today. Based on these figures, £750 will buy you €20.40 more today than it would have three months ago. We recorded a high rate of 1.186 on 4th December 2016 and a low rate of 1.095 on 2nd November 2016.
