Travel advise: payments in Romania

Jet off well-informed to Romania. Here are some handy facts about cash and card payments in Romania.

Banknotes in Romania

The Romanian Leu is the national currency of Romania. The plural of 'Leu' is 'Lei'.

All Romania's banknotes are made of polymer plastic and have a see-through window. The current (new) Romanian Leu (RON) replaced the (old) Romanian Leu (ROL) in 2005, taking off four zeroes from the banknotes. For example, the 10,000 ROL banknote was replaced by the 1 RON banknote. Make sure to only accept banknotes dated 2005 and after.

Banknotes in circulation in Romania are 1 RON, 5 RON, 10 RON, 50 RON, 100 RON, 200 RON and 500 RON.

Coins in Romania

Romanian coins range from 1 ban (0.01 RON) to 50 bani (0.50 RON). The ban is the subunit of the leu, with 100 bani in 1 leu.
