As in the title. The game in question is Vampire: the Masquerade 20th Anniversary edition. For some reason I cannot find it anywhere in the book.

Rituals cost no XP to learn.

Ref page 212, middle of the right column, VTM 20AE corebook:

Additional rituals are learned separately, as part of a story; players need not pay experience points for their characters to learn rituals up to the level equal to their overall rating in Thaumaturgy, though they must find someone to teach the rituals in question.

There are optional rules for buying rituals with XP. At least in Revised Edition, and I think in V20. I just don't remember in what books. –  Flamma Jul 29 at 16:22
    
Could not find the book but I think it was 1 xp per ritual level. You should give for free the rituals the characters achieve in the story, but using xp could be a good system to acquire rituals during the interludes. –  Mu_ Jul 29 at 23:02
    
My players get to pick one ritual when they buy a new dot in the discipline, not in paths. Others through role playing or at 2xp per dot. This works well for us. –  Bob Jul 30 at 5:23

There is no experience cost.

"You learn the ritual from someone who already knows it or a book/scroll. This can take anywhere from a few nights to months or even years."

Source: VTM 20 ed book. Pg. 230 Top left hand corner start.

Since no xp cost is mentioned, it is able to be assumed that the cost is inherent in the cost of your Thaumaturgy or Necromancy.
