Where can I get Lebanese currency?

  • Online ordering: Secure your Lebanese pounds online and have them sent straight to your door or workplace. Our simple online ordering process makes holiday cash simple.

Should I bring cash to Lebanon?

Definitely. Bringing Lebanese pounds with you is wise, and here’s why:

  • Seamless arrival: Arriving with cash ensures a smooth start. Instantly cover taxi fares, snacks, or a SIM card.
  • Steer clear of airport rates: Airports often have higher exchange rates. Get your currency in advance to avoid this.
  • Emergency funds: It’s always possible to encounter a non-working ATM. Be prepared with some cash on hand.
  • Budget management: Handling physical cash helps you keep track of spending. Manage your finances better with tangible money.
  • Exploring rural Lebanon? Carry cash, as remote areas might lack ATM or card facilities.

Starting with some cash is smart, but you can also withdraw more Lebanese pounds from ATMs in Lebanon as needed.

What’s the difference between Lebanese pound and Lebanese lira?

The terms “Lebanese pounds” and “Lebanese lira” refer to the same currency, the official currency of Lebanon. 

Confusion often arises because the currency is known by two different names, but they are interchangeable and represent the same value within Lebanon’s financial system.

The official designation is the “Lebanese pound” (LBP), which is used in most formal and financial contexts. 

However, “Lebanese lira” is commonly used in everyday language and conversation among the locals in Lebanon. 

Despite the different names, there is no difference in value between the Lebanese pound and the Lebanese lira; they are simply two names for the same currency. Convert your British pounds to Lebanese lira today.

What is the best currency to use in Lebanon?

The Lebanese pound (LBP) is your best bet. It’s the official currency, perfect for everyday expenses like food, transport, and shopping.

Some businesses might accept euros (EUR) and US dollars (USD) in tourist spots. However, relying on the Lebanese pound is most practical.

Are euros accepted in Lebanon?

Yes, euros are sometimes accepted in Lebanon, especially in tourist areas, major hotels, shops, and restaurants. 

However, using the local currency, the Lebanese pound (LBP), is more common and generally advisable for everyday transactions. 

While you might be able to use euros in some places, the exchange rate offered by merchants may not be as favourable as what you would get at a bank or currency exchange. 

For the best value and convenience, it’s recommended to convert pounds to Lebanese to use when you’re in Lebanon.

Can you pay in dollars in Lebanon?

Yes, you can often use US dollars in Lebanon. Many places like shops, restaurants, and hotels accept them. But having Lebanese pounds for smaller purchases or places that only take local currency is good.

Can I use my bank card in Lebanon?

Major debit and credit cards are accepted in Lebanon’s cities and tourist areas. But remember:

  1. Cards may not work in less populated or rural regions. Always have cash as a backup.
  2. ATMs usually dispense Lebanese pounds, but some might charge fees.
  3. Check with your bank about international transaction fees before your trip.

Is it better to use cash or debit card in Lebanon?

Both have their place. Cash suits smaller, everyday transactions, while cards are better for more significant expenses and in city settings.

How much cash should I take to Lebanon?

Your daily budget will vary based on your travel style:

  • Budget travellers might need around £30-£50 per day for essentials, approximately 675,000 to 1,125,000 Lebanese pounds.
  • Mid-range travellers could spend between £50 and £100 for a bit more comfort and experiences, equating to about 1,125,000 to 2,250,000 Lebanese pounds.
  • For a luxury experience, budgeting over £100 per day is advisable, translating to over 2,250,000 Lebanese pounds.

Always have a little extra for unforeseen expenses and research costs in your destination areas.

How can I dodge ATM fees in Lebanon?

Minimise fees by using reputable bank ATMs and making fewer, larger withdrawals. See if your home bank has fee-reduction agreements with any Lebanese banks.

Is Lebanon cheap or expensive?

Lebanon caters to all budgets. While Beirut and tourist spots can be pricier, overall, the country is relatively wallet-friendly.

A coffee in Lebanon might cost you about 10 to 20 Lebanese pounds, roughly £0.05 to £0.10, depending on where you are and what you order.

A three-course meal in a mid-range restaurant could set you back about 150,000 to 225,000 Lebanese pounds, or £5 to £7.50, offering great value for the quality and variety of Lebanese cuisine.

Do you tip in Lebanon?

Tipping is common but not mandatory. A 5-10% restaurant tip is appreciated, and small tokens of gratitude for hotel staff are kind gestures.

Currently, no. The FCDO advises against travelling to Lebanon for any reason. 

Travel safety can change, so it’s best to check the latest travel advice from reliable sources like the UK government’s travel website before going to Lebanon. They have up-to-date safety information, areas to avoid, and other essential tips. Always stay informed and cautious.

Yes, if you’re a UK national, you usually need a visa to visit Lebanon. You can often get it when you arrive, but rules can change. Checking the latest visa requirements before your trip is a good idea.

For Lebanon, no specific vaccinations are required. But it’s wise to be up-to-date on routine shots like measles and flu. 

Also, consider hepatitis A and typhoid vaccines, as they can help protect you from food and waterborne illnesses. 

Before your trip, always check with a health professional for the most current advice.

The best time to visit Lebanon is spring (April to June) or fall (September to November).

The weather is mild and pleasant during these months, perfect for exploring outdoor sights and enjoying Lebanon’s natural beauty. Spring brings beautiful blooms, while fall offers comfortable temperatures and fewer crowds.
