Credit Card and Currency
Hotels and car rental companies accept the major credit cards. Travellers cheques are accepted throughout the island. Our local currency is the Eastern Caribbean dollar (EC) but the US Dollar is accepted.
Banks will exchange EC$2.67 for US$1.00 cash and EC$2.68 for US$1.00 in travellers cheques. We advise that you exchange currency at banks, as lower exchange rates may not be found elsewhere.
