Local Currency: Uzbekistani Sum.
Recommended Currency for Exchange: Take your spending money in US$ cash, as many bars and shops only accept hard currency (and often lack the facility to change travellers cheques or to use visa card ).
We recommend you take new (post 1990), good condition dollar bills in small denominations.
Where to Exchange: Most major towns – at the exchange office.
Credit Card Acceptance: Rarely acceptable.
ATM Availability: Very limited, do not rely on this.
Travellers Cheques: Exchange is not available.
Additional Information: Remember to keep your currency declaration form – it will be required when you leave.
Tipping: Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognized part of life in this region of the world.
Some local staff look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided.
