What currency is used in Madagascar and when should I exchange my money?
Question

We are visiting Madagascar next month, but I am a bit confused about whether I should exchange my money before leaving the UK or can I wait until I arrive?

The Malagasy Ariary is Madagascar’s national currency, however other major currencies are accepted. Euros and US dollars are the most frequently utilized currencies. As there aren’t many locations to convert money in Madagascar, try to exchange enough money when you arrive to last you at least a week (or before you leave). There are relatively few cash machines/ATMs and those that do exist only dispatch Malagasy Ariary. Travelers’ cheques are not accepted at Ivato Airport in Antannarivo, and credit card use is relatively restricted across Madagascar (the most frequently accepted is Visa), but it is a great backup option. Madagascar is one of the safest and nicest places.  Locals, employees, and guides are all warm and courteous, eager to answer your questions and engage in conversation. As with any other vacation, you must take care of your things, store money in different areas in case of loss or theft and avoid going out alone at night.
