The local currency in Sri Lanka is the Rupee, which is divided into 100 units. Notes include 5000, 1000, 500, 100, 50, 20 and 10 Rupee, there are also a number of coins ranging from 100, 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1 cent pieces.

Please remain alert at all times when using a credit card: try not to let the card out of your sight when making a purchase particularly in restaurants or shops and make sure you keep the emergency contact number required in the event of card loss or fraud to hand in a separate place.

Currently there is a restriction on importing Sri Lankan Rupees into Sri Lanka, the allowance is 1000 Rupees per person, and therefore we recommend changing a little on arrival at the airport in Colombo where there are a number of Banks in the arrivals hall after you pass through customs.

The current exchange rate, (which fluctuates), is approximately 190 Rupees per £1.00 sterling. We recommend taking sterling travellers cheques or cash, (there is obviously less risk and the exchange rate is more beneficial for traveller’s cheques). In common with most countries it is normal to show your appreciation for good service by leaving a gratuity.
