Compare before you buy

Some of the best travel money deals are only available when you buy online. By using a comparison site, you're more likely to see the full range of deals on offer and get the best rate.

Always place your order online, even if you plan to collect your currency in person. Most supermarkets and high street currency suppliers offer better exchange rates if you order online beforehand.

Combine orders

If you're travelling with others, consider placing one large currency order instead of buying individually. Many currency suppliers offer enhanced rates that improve as you order more.

Malaysian ringgit banknotes and coins

One Malaysian ringgit (RM) can be subdivided into 100 sen.

There are six denominations of Malaysian ringgit banknotes in frequent circulation: RM 1, RM 5, RM 10, RM 20, RM 50 and RM 100; and four coin denominations: 5 sen, 10 sen, 20 sen and 50 sen.

Spanish dollars were used in Malaysia back when it was a Portuguese colony. The Malays of the time would refer to the irregular-shaped Spanish coins as 'ringgits' which means 'jagged ones', and this is how the Malaysian ringgit got its name.
