Why Order Travel Money With TUI?
How to make the most of your Saudi riyal on holiday
If you’re heading to Saudi Arabia, don’t forget to pick up some Saudi riyal before you go. The Saudi riyal or SAR is the official currency of Saudi Arabia, and is made up of 100 halalas to the riyal.
Exchange rates will vary depending on where you get your currency, and on fluctuations of course, but in 2018 the average was five Saudi riyal to the pound.
Where to get Saudi riyal
You’ll probably need to pre-order your Saudi riyal as this currency usually isn’t stocked as standard by most providers, so simply head to your nearest TUI Store and let them know what you’re after. You can also order from us online.
A guide to using Saudi riyal abroad
Budget around 300 Saudi riyal per day for your holiday, which should be enough for food, drinks, and sightseeing. If you do need a little more money than you’ve budgeted, there are lots of ATMs, especially in banks.
A 10 to 15% tip is standard in Saudi Arabian restaurants, but only if a service charge hasn’t already been added to your bill. Of course, you can still choose to tip extra if you want to.
