We'll help you to get the best Sri Lankan Rupee exchange rate

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. If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect Sri Lankan Rupees page to find a local supplier near you.

Sri Lankan Rupee rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Sri Lankan Rupee has increased by 1.51% from 199.298 on the 11th September to 202.300 today. This means £750 will buy you ₹2,251.50 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 198.657 on the 12th September. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Sri Lankan Rupee exchange rate history page.

How do I buy Sri Lankan Rupees?

Using our comparison form at the top of the page, enter the amount of Sri Lankan Rupees you want to buy, select your preferred payment method(s) and click 'Compare Deals'. We'll return a list of UK currency suppliers who are selling Sri Lankan Rupees right now along with their latest exchange rates and delivery information. The results are sorted in order of who is offering the most Sri Lankan Rupees after all fees and delivery charges have been added which means the best deals are always at the top of the table. Choose the supplier you want to order with and follow the link to their website where you can place your order with them directly.

When is the best time to buy Sri Lankan Rupees?

It is impossible for us to predict the best time to buy Sri Lankan Rupees. We provide some historical exchange rate data in the chart above so you can see the overall trend, but beyond that we cannot offer any advice on when to buy. Our advice is to not worry too much about trying to perfectly time the market. Unless you are buying tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of currency, the daily changes in exchange rates do not make a huge difference to the amount of currency you'll receive.

Can I collect my Sri Lankan Rupees in person?

Yes, some currency suppliers do allow you to collect Sri Lankan Rupees from them in person. We have a dedicated Click & Collect page where you can find the nearest supplier in your area. If you plan on collecting in person, we recommend ordering or reserving your Sri Lankan Rupees online first on the supplier's website to guarantee the exchange rate. Some suppliers offer lower exchange rates if you walk in off the street, but you can usually order online in advance and collect your currency in store at the better online rate.

How long does Delivery take?

Most currency suppliers will dispatch your order on the same or next working day after they receive your payment, and all orders are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. However, just in case any unexpected delays crop up we recommend ordering no later than 3 working days before you are due to travel. If you've left it too late for home delivery, check out our Click & Collect page to find a local Sri Lankan Rupee supplier near you. We cover most UK airports, so in the worst case scenario you can reserve your currency online (at the better online rate) and pick it up from the departure lounge before you fly.

Do I have to be at home when my currency is delivered?

No. All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. Somebody at your address will need to sign for the package but if nobody is home when the postman attempts to deliver, they'll leave a missed delivery card and you can either collect the package from your nearest sorting office or arrange for it to be re-delivered on a more convenient day.

Can I have my Sri Lankan Rupees sent to a different address?

Generally, no. This is ultimately at the discretion of the currency supplier, but most suppliers will only deliver to the home address of the person paying for the currency (i.e. the card or bank account holder's address). This is for security reasons because a signature is required when the currency is delivered, and signatures from work or other addresses can be unreliable and difficult to prove.

What happens if the package goes missing during delivery?

All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. This type of postage is more secure than standard post and is meant specifically for high-value and important items because tracking is enabled by default and a signature is required as proof of delivery. It is very rare for a Special Delivery package to go missing, but in the unlikely event that it does you will be completely reimbursed by Royal Mail for the full value of the currency and the cost of postage.

What payment method should I use?

The payment method you choose is important because it affects whether or not you pay any extra fees during checkout, and also whether you are financially protected in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the supplier. We have written a more detailed guide about choosing a payment method on our blog: A guide to payment methods.

Are there any limits on the amount of Sri Lankan Rupees I can order?

Most, but not all, currency suppliers have a minimum and a maximum amount you can order from them, however we automatically factor these into our comparisons so if you tell us exactly how much you want to spend we'll only return suppliers that can fulfill your request. Most suppliers also have a minimum amount that you can order from them to qualify for free home delivery; if you order less than this amount you can still get your order delivered by you'll have to pay for postage. Again, we automatically factor these charges into our comparisons so you don't need to worry about any hidden costs during checkout.

Is ordering online safe and secure?

All of the currency suppliers we compare use SSL encryption as standard on their ordering pages. This means that when you place an order, a secure connection is created between you and the supplier and your personal and payment details are transmitted using the same level of encryption as online banking.

Am I financially protected if something goes wrong with the supplier?

The level of financial protection you receive is determined by the payment method you choose. For more information see our FAQ above: What payment method should I use?

What checks does Compare Holiday Money carry out on the listed suppliers?

All currency suppliers are required to complete a comprehensive onboarding questionnaire before we list them on the Compare Holiday Money website. This questionnaire provides us with information on the supplier's background, financial history, directors and technical capabilities, as well as document any legal and regulatory requirements the supplier may have. Our compliance team verify the answers by cross-referencing them with various online registers such as Companies House, the Supervised Business Register and the Financial Conduct Authority, and we then make a decision as to whether to list them. Once a supplier has been listed we run regular audits to check the ongoing status and accuracy of the information provided, and if any issues are flagged up we immediately suspend the listing until the supplier corrects the issue or provides us with clarification. Despite these stringent checks, we cannot guarantee the solvency of any suppliers who appear on the Compare Holiday Money website and we urge all customers to conduct their own research before transacting with a company.

Do I need to provide ID or other documents?

It depends. You may need to provide some ID, typically a copy of your passport or driver's licence, depending on how much currency you are ordering. Most suppliers won't ask for ID if you're ordering less than £1,000 but most will if you're ordering £2,500 or more. If you're ordering £10,000 or more you may need to provide additional information on the source of the funds. The exact requirements vary from supplier to supplier, but they will make it clear what form(s) of ID and other documents they require before you place an order.

Can I sell back any unused Sri Lankan Rupees?

Yes, we have a section of our website dedicated to currency buybacks: Exchange Sri Lankan Rupees for Pounds Sterling.

Can I send money to a bank account in Sri Lanka instead?

Yes, we can facilitate the transfer of currency into an overseas bank account; see our Money Transfers page for more information.

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.
