Currency: The Tanzanian Shilling is the official currency of Tanzania, but US dollars are also widely accepted in tourist areas. You can exchange money at many authorised dealers, banks and bureaux de change. It is advised to get a receipt after each transaction.
ATMs: Are easy to access in Stone Town. You can also pay for taxis and hotels in US Dollars. To minimise the risk of card cloning, only use ATMs located within a bank. Traveller’s cheques are not widely accepted and non-Bank of England sterling notes may be subject to less favourable exchange rates.
Credit cards: Are accepted in larger hotels and restaurants.
