Hi there,

Cash or TC depends on the cost of TC from your local bank, and on your willingness to spend quite some time in queues/waits to get them exchanged at the local bank. (Don't do so at the hotels, and neither for cash, as they give 10% less rupees to compensate for their service...) Cash exchange at local banks, or money changers, is quite fast and the rate in Lanka is also about the same - with TC's yielding a little bit more, see sites like

All the best,

A third option is using a debit/credit card to withdraw cash from ATMs.

Hi Vanessa,

Yes they have. Depend on the room type you book. you can request a room with this facilily.

However as many commented. you do not need to bring cash or valuables, instead bring bank cards. Easy and safe.

Good luck
