    The Lithuanian Litas (LTL) was the official currency of Lithuania until 2015, when it was replaced by the Euro (EUR). The Lithuanian Litas was abbreviated as LTL and was made up of 100 centų. The Bank of Lithuania issued the currency and was responsible for managing the country's monetary policy.

    The Lithuanian Litas was introduced in 1922, after Lithuania gained independence from the Russian Empire. It was replaced by the Euro on January 1, 2015, as part of Lithuania's efforts to join the Eurozone.

    Send Money to Lithuania - Best Rates

    To get a good (and fair) exchange rate when sending money to Lithuania you need to find and compare exchange rates for International Money Transfers (IMTs).

    The available FX rates for sending money abroad can be very different to the mid-market (wholesale) rate which you see reported online and in the News.

    You should especially compare your own bank's exchange rates to those available from Money Transfer specialists to see how much you can save - we make that calculation easy in the below table.

    Get a better deal for foreign transfers to Lithuania

    When sending money to Lithuania it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 4 simple steps :

    1. Open an account with a BER reviewed FX provider (id docs may be required)
    2. You specify the local or LTL amount you want to transfer
    3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
    4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted LTL amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in Lithuania.

    Use the above calculator to compare the exchange rates of FX specialist providers rates versus your bank's standard rates you can hopefully save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more LTL deposited into the recipient bank account and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
