Chad Currency

Money

The Central African CFA franc (FCFA) is the official currency of Chad (along with five other central African countries). It is divided into 100 smaller units called centime. Chad is a cash economy and credit cards are seldom, if ever, accepted. Foreign currency can be exchanged at a few hotels and banks in the capital city but the process is expensive and time consuming and the banking services are unreliable. Travellers are advised to bring sufficient funds in CFA with them. There are no reliable ATMs in Chad.
