You are VERY welcome. I strongly suggest you read the Sri Lanka: Travel Tips on this site and either ask us or post on the forum if you have any more questions. The more you read and prepare, the better..... Have a lovely trip.....

We changed some UK money on a arrival at the airport - there's several desks - WATCH THEM CLOSELY as we needed cash for taxi - which we also arranged on arrival.

Some places will take UK notes in the resort and ask you what rate they should use AND lots of places change currency if you prefer to shop around - again be aware of possible note chicanery :-)

You should change money into LKR at the airport when you arrive. Check out how much you should get (currency app will be useful) and expect just a little less. All the desks offer the same rate and the money is usually automatically counted. Yes be careful as always but we’ve never had a problem at the airport.

No they don’t take any other currencies.
