What is the Fijian currency and do I need cash for the islands?

The currency is the Fijian dollar.

There are no banks in the islands so you'll need to plan ahead! The bank at Nadi International Airport is open 24 hours and cash machines are available at Nadi Airport, in Nadi town and at Port Denarau.

Credit cards and travellers cheques can be used on most islands but it is still advisable to have some cash with you.

If you're travelling on an Awesome Adventures Fiji package, between FJ$30-$40 cash per day should be enough.
