Saudi Riyal Exchange Rate History Graphs

Whether you're buying or selling Saudi Riyals it's always useful to see how the Saudi Riyal rate has changed over time so you can put the current rate into context and decide if now is a good time to place your order. Unfortunately most historical Saudi Riyal graphs are not based on actual high street data but instead show the inflated interbank rates which are not available to the general public. Our historical Saudi Riyal graphs are different because we plot the actual exchange rates that Saudi Riyals can be bought or sold at in the UK and are indicative of what you could have received if you ordered on the day.

We show two sets of data below. The first is the historical rate for Saudi Riyal travel money which is the rate you would receive if you bought Saudi Riyals. The second is the historical Saudi Riyal buy back rate which is the rate you would receive if you sold Saudi Riyals.
