We'll help you to get the best Saudi Riyal exchange rate

We compare the Saudi Riyal 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 Saudi Riyal 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 Saudi Riyals page to find a local supplier near you.

Saudi Riyal rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Saudi Riyal has dropped by 0.00% from 4.8946 on the 19th July to 4.8944 today. Back then, £750 would have bought you SR0.15 more than it would today. During this period the Saudi Riyal hit a high of 4.9431 on the 25th September and a low of 4.7597 on the 21st August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Saudi Riyal exchange rate history page.

The Saudi Riyal is pegged to the US Dollar at a rate of $1 USD = 3.75 SAR. Our statistics show that the average UK traveller takes around £800 Riyals with them to Saudi Arabia, which makes it one of the larger-than-average orders we see. There is not a huge variance in the exchange rates offered, which is not uncommon with pegged currencies but the online providers definitely come out on top in the comparison tables.

If you plan to exchange money in Saudi Arabia, avoid using the money changing services in hotels as these offer very poor rates. The best rates are found at banks and any of the bureau de change dotted around the towns and markets. You should take reasonable precautions if you are using a street vendor as they can be a hotspot for crime and fraud.

You can frequently use credit and debit cards in restaurants, shops and hotels but not with tour and excursion operators so you will need a stock of cash to see the best of Saudi Arabia. Consider a prepaid currency card as well as cash if you want to have the flexibility and security of both.

Saudi Arabia is a very conservative society and we strongly recommend that you make yourself familiar with the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office's travel advice for Saudi Arabia before you travel.

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

All visitors including pilgrims require a visa to enter Saudi Arabia. You must apply for a visa through visa agencies accredited to the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia.

During the Hajj, all Muslim visitors travelling to Jeddah and Medina will need to have a valid Hajj visa. Non-Muslim visitors travelling to these destinations may be asked to explain the purpose of your trip or asked to show evidence of appointments before being allowed to board a flight to Jeddah. Any Muslim visitor arriving in Jeddah or Medina without a valid Hajj visa will be refused entry. This requirement does not apply to other airports or British residents in Saudi Arabia.

Pilgrims must leave Saudi Arabia from the same airport they arrived. If you take an internal flight from Jeddah to Medina, you may be required to show either a return flight to Jeddah or evidence that you intend to travel by land.

Prepaid Saudi Riyal 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 Saudi Arabia and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.

International Saudi Riyal Transfers
