The Central African CFA franc (XAF) 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 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. There are also very few reliable ATMs in Chad.
