The currency you’ll need for Los Angeles is the US Dollar. There are countless ATM machines around the city, and you’ll be able to pay on card in most shops, bars, restaurants and hotels. We recommended getting your Dollars before you travel to LA, though, to get the best rates and avoid paying charges for using your card abroad. Drop into one of our Thomas Cook stores, or try our online service where you can reserve your rate and even have your money delivered to you.
