Gambia - currency

The currency in Gambia is the Gambian Dalasi (GMD), which is subdivided into 100 bututs.

Gambia remains a primarily cash-based economy, so it’s worth bearing that in mind before you jet off. We advise changing your pounds for Dalasi before you leave to make sure you’re getting a good rate. If you run out of time most hotels and local banks will be able to exchange your sterling.

You’ll find a number of hotels and restaurants that accept visa debit cards, while few will take credit card payments. You’ll also see ATM machines in the tourist area of Senegambia and a few other popular resorts, but they can be unreliable. Plus, you may have to pay a surcharge for using them.
