Money and Travel in Ghana: Top Secrets

How Much Cash is Enough?

Ghana, while in Africa, is still a relatively safe country in which to travel and it’s safe to bring cash. Up to one thousand US dollars is a safe amount. The major currencies, including US dollars, Euros, Yen, Canadian Dollars and Australian Dollars, can be changed at any of the numerous currency exchange bureaus in all main towns and tourist centres.

Plastic Cards in Ghana: Bringing a credit card to Ghana is helpful as a back up or as a main source of accessing money for travel, although it would be unwise to rely on this alone should the card be stolen. A mix of cash and credit card is the best solution.

Credit and bank cards can be used to withdraw cash from ATMs, although you will be charged a fee by your credit card company for every withdrawal.
