Money and Costs, Sri Lanka


02 Money and Costs

2.1 Money:
The unit of currency is the Sri Lanka Rupee (LKR), which is divided into 100 cents. Major credit cards are widely accepted, and traveller’s cheques in US Dollars are recommended. ATMs are becoming more common, but outside the main cities they are unlikely to accept international cards. Credit cards should be used with caution due to the potential for fraud. Foreign currency can be exchanged at bureaux de change, banks and hotels, but exchanging cash is more expensive than exchanging traveller’s cheques. Banks are closed on Sundays.


2.2 Currency Exchange Rates
LKR 100.00 = A$ 0.97 C$ 0.92 IRR 8,726.72 NZ$ 1.20 £ 0.47 US$ 0.93 R 7.04

Note: These currency exchange rates are not updated daily and should be used as a guideline only.


2.3 Credit Cards:
Reputed credit and charge cards are widely accepted by shops in Sri Lanka. In some cases the shops may try to add a surcharge to the price of the merchandise purchased. This is not an acceptable practice and in such cases the card company should be contacted so that corrective action can be taken. These services are available at the Departure lounge and in Kandy and Colombo


2.4 Banking hours:
National banking hours are from 0900 hrs. To 1500 hrs. On weekdays. Banking hours may be different at private banks. Further teller machines (ATM ) are operated through out the day.
