Currency

Sitting outside the Eurozone The Gambia is an increasingly attractive destination in light of the ongoing drop in sterling. The Gambia's currency is the Dalasi, with £1 Sterling buying around 60 Dalasi (January 2014).

As with all currencies, the Dalasi rate to the Pound can fluctuate. Dalasi are available in the UK but you will get a better exchange rate in The Gambia.

Please visit www.xe.com to receive the current rate.

Please note, Euros are also accepted in the Gambia and can be exchanged at hotel receptions. All our hotels can change money except, Mandina Lodges and Sandele Eco-Retreat.

The largest note that is available is the D100 and the smallest is D5 - it is always worth trying to keep your smaller denominations as many stall traders will not have enough small notes for change if you pay with a larger note.

Although some restaurants and hotels in The Gambia do accept credit cards, it is not wise to rely on them. Before you try to use your card please check that it is accepted, whether there would be a surcharge and what rate is being used. Debit cards are still more restricted and Solo and Switch cards are not accepted.
