The Malaysian Ringgit is widely stocked and offered by many UK currency suppliers but there is little variation in the exchange rates offered despite the Ringgit being a free-floating currency.
Our statistics (1st of July to 30st of September, 2016) show that the average British tourist takes about £1998 (RM10,621.97). This is an incease from the £930 worth of Ringgits that we saw back in 2013. Malaysia is recognised as a very cheap holiday destination, but UK travellers tend to stay for longer periods of time than they would at European destinations which warrant more spending money. A typical three course meal for two in Malaysia will cost less than £10, and a bottle of Coke just 40p.
British passport holders do not need a visa to enter Malaysia and will usually be granted stay for up to three months. If you plan to stay in Malaysia for longer than three months, or if your visit is for non-tourist reasons, you should apply for a visa from the Malaysian Embassy before you travel.
Over the past week the Malaysian Ringgit has dropped by 0.06% from last Monday's rate of 5.3193 to today's rate of 5.3163 which means £750 will buy you RM2.25 less now than it would have a week ago. During this period the best rate we recorded was 5.3193 on Monday and the worst rate is 5.3163 recorded today.
The 90 day outlook has seen the Malaysian Ringgit rate increase by 0.04% from 5.314 on 1st January 2017 to 5.3163 today. Based on these figures, £750 will buy you RM1.72 more today than it would have three months ago. We recorded a high rate of 5.4053 on 26th February 2017 and a low rate of 5.1473 on 15th January 2017.
