We compare the Sri Lankan Rupee 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 Sri Lankan Rupee 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.

Sri Lankan Rupee rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Sri Lankan Rupee has increased by 7.29% from 191.986 on the 19th August to 205.975 today. This means £750 will buy you ₹10,491.75 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Sri Lankan Rupee hit a high of 222.996 on the 16th October and a low of 191.986 on the 19th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Sri Lankan Rupee exchange rate history page.

The Rupee is the currency of Sri Lanka, divided into 100 cents. It is issued by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka. The abbreviation is generally Rs., but SLRs. is occasionally used to distinguish it from other currencies also called rupee.

Banknotes were issued from 1977 by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka. 20 rupee notes were introduced two years later, followed by 500 and 1000 rupees in 1981, 200 rupees in 1998 and in 2006 2,000 rupee notes were introduced. These banknotes are very unusual in that they are printed vertically on the reverse. In 1998, a 200-rupee note was issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of independence (1948–1998). This is the first polymer banknote issued in Sri Lanka. All other denominations are printed by the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom.

Sri Lankan Rupee are not stocked by every bureau de change and currency house in the UK. It is still wise to see who is selling LKR and compare rates online before you buy. Sri Lankan Government regulation means you can only take Rs5000 into the country.

You will need a visa to enter Sri Lanka. You can obtain a short-stay visa online; see the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office website for more information.

Prepaid Sri Lankan Rupee Cards
