The official currency is the Central Africa CFA Franc (XAF), which is divided into 100 centimes. Cash is easier to exchange than travellers cheques, and Euros are by far the easiest currency to change for CFA francs. Credit cards have limited acceptance in Cameroon and ATMs are few and far between.
