Cur­rency: The na­tional cur­rency of Iran is the Ira­nian Rial, although Ira­ni­ans will of­ten re­fer to the Toman, a unit of 10 Rials. It is nearly im­pos­si­ble to change Rials back into hard cur­rency out­side Iran, so try not to ac­cu­mu­late too many in your trav­els.

Credit Cards: No ATMs are avail­able and credit cards are gen­er­ally not ac­cepted in shops and restau­rants, although they may be in top-end shops and car­pet deal­ers. There­fore you will need to be car­ry­ing cash when vis­it­ing. Do NOT take Trav­ellers Cheques or cash pass­port cards as they are not pos­si­ble to use in Iran.

All ma­jor cur­ren­cies are ex­change­able in the big cities although US dol­lars are more read­ily ac­cept­able around the coun­try. Eu­ros are pre­ferred in high de­nom­i­na­tions and notes printed after 1996 for US dol­lars.
