New Orleans - currency

The currency in New Orleans is the US Dollar ($ or USD).

So you’re prepared it's always worth picking up some dollars before you jet off to New Orleans. This way you have some cash readily available should you need it for tipping or any cash-only exceptions. You either head to an exchange bureau or order them from Thomas Cook Travel Money and your spends will be delivered straight to your door.

If you run out of cash, don’t worry. Like most cities, finding an ATM in New Orleans is easy - just make sure you’re aware of any charges before you withdraw your funds. You can also pay by debit or credit card, but using your card may incur a charge so it is always important to check with your bank before you depart.
