Although Romania joined the European Union (EU) on the 1st of January 2007, they don't have the Euro as currency. Romania is planning to join the Eurozone in 2014.

Since the 1st of July 2005 the official Romanian currency is the Leu (Plural: Lei), which is divided into 100 Bani. The ISO code for Lei is RON (Romanian New Lei).

Before this date the curreny was also called Leu, but had four more 0, which means 1 new Lei equals 10.000 old Lei. The ISO code for the old Lei was ROL (Romanian Lei).

You can get your Romanian money with a credit or debit card from cash points or just by exchanging your local money at one of the bureaux de change.
