We'll help you to get the best Romanian Leu exchange rate

We compare the Romanian Leu rates from dozens of the UK's biggest currency suppliers including the Post Office, supermarkets, high street banks and specialist online travel money providers, so you can see in an instant who is offering the best deals after commission and delivery charges have been accounted for. Many of our travel money affiliates also offer our customers exclusive exchange rates that are even better than if you go to them direct, and on average our customers save £59 when they compare with us.

Generally speaking, specialist online travel money providers and bureau de change offer the best Romanian Leu exchange rates, followed by the supermarkets, the Post Office and then the banks. The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs. If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect Romanian Leu page to find a local supplier near you.

Romanian Leu rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Romanian Leu has increased by 3.37% from 5.0325 on the 17th August to 5.2021 today. This means £750 will buy you L127.20 more today than it would have three months ago. The highest Romanian Leu rate we recorded over this period was 5.2021 today and a low of 4.9513 on the 28th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Romanian Leu exchange rate history page.

There are two currencies called the Leu: the Moldova Leu and the Romanian Leu. These are not the same currency and you cannot spend Moldavian Leu in Romania. Romania joined the EU in 2007 and were scheduled to join the Euro in 2015. This has been delayed further and no date is currently set. Because of this; if you have any leftover Leu after your holiday you should consider selling your currency back as soon as possible.

Outside of Bucharest it may be difficult to exchange Pounds or US Dollars for Leu so we recommend ordering cash before you travel to Romania. On bank notes you will see both "Leu" and "Lei" used. Lei is the plural of Leu, so you will notice 1 Leu and 5 Lei printed on them respectively.

One of the appeals of Romania is the organised Agroturism Bed and Brekfast network. Because these are in rural areas, you should not depend on using credit or debit cards but take enough cash for your stay instead. A couple should typically budget about £80 a day for a comfortable stay.

The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) are aware of a common scam involving thieves in Romania who present themselves as plain-clothes police officers. They flash an identity badge and then ask to see passports and wallets. They count the money and give the documents back, but when they return the wallet, some of the money is missing. You should be extra vigilant on your trip and ask to see proof of identify before handing over money or documents.

Before you travel to Romania you can get advice from the UK Government website

British citizens can enter Romania for up to three months without a visa. If you intend to stay for longer than this you can apply for a special registration certificate from the Romanian Immigration Office as either a student, self-employed, self-supported or employee. You will also be required to register with the Immigration Office if you plan to work in Romania, although no separate work permit is required.

Prepaid Romanian Leu Cards

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 Romania and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
