Romanian leu (RON) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to Romanian leu chart plots the actual Romanian leu buyback rates offered by our panel of UK currency providers at the end of each day, so you can see the historical performance of the Romanian leu against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This page shows the Romanian leu to pound exchange rate, not the Romanian leu buyback rate advertised in our Romanian leu buyback comparisons. Both rates are the same, but the buyback rate is displayed in a different format due to the way UK currency suppliers advertise their buyback rates. Learn more
This annual exchange rate summary provides a detailed breakdown of the performance of the Romanian leu against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Romanian leu buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Romanian leu to pound exchange rate, and the Romanian leu buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Romanian leu to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Romanian leu in British pounds. For example, a Romanian leu to pound rate of 0.1786 means one Romanian leu is worth 0.1786 pounds.
In contrast, the Romanian leu buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Romanian lei you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Romanian leu buyback rate of 5.6 means you'd have to exchange 5.6 Romanian lei to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Romanian leu buyback rate instead of the Romanian leu to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Romanian leu comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Romanian leu to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Romanian leu buyback rate into the actual Romanian leu to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Romanian leu buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 5.6 = 0.1786.
If you want to exchange Romanian lei into British pounds, we can help you to find a reputable foreign exchange provider. We compare the Romanian leu rates from tried-and-tested companies who will buy currency by post or over the counter.
