Cur­rency: The lo­cal cur­rency is the Jor­da­nian Di­nar (JD). There are 1 ,5, 10, 20 and 50 JD notes. The di­nar is di­vided into 100 pi­asters or 1000 fils. The fils is the unit most com­monly used and so prices are of­ten writ­ten as 4,750 which is 4 JD and 750 fils.

Cur­rency can be ex­changed at ma­jor banks, ex­change booths and at most ho­tels. It is ad­vised to avoid street money chang­ers. Credit Cards: All the usual credit cards are ac­cepted at ho­tels, restau­rants and larger shops. Smaller shops and those shops in the souks (lo­cal mar­kets) pre­fer pay­ment in cash, and lo­cal cur­rency.
