I have read on this subject before, but can't find it now. I know that in the big shops they will probably take credit cards, but what about debit cards?........also, do the big shops want pounds or US$$ ?........what about in the markets: pounds or $$?
I am thinking about taking some of those pre-paid visa cards that operate almost like a debit card, but from that balance on the card only. Has anyone used these.....if so, any problems with cafes and shops taking these?
If you exchanged for Egyptian pounds, where was the best place for that when you got to Cairo??
On board the Anuket, do you settle up your bar bill, shop bill, etc. with a credit card or cash? If cash, pounds or $$ ?
Tips for the PD, staff on Anuket, bus drivers, etc.......$$ or pounds?
I am going on the Jordan post-trip also. Same questions as for above.....(except of course the money is dinars instead, correct??).
Thanks so much for any info. It always seems to vary from trip to trip, country to country!!
