The official currency is the Haitian Gourde (HTG), divided into 100 centimes, but US Dollars and the Dominican Peso are also widely accepted. Credit cards are welcome nearly everywhere, but ATMs are scarce and the few there are in Port au Prince are often out of order. Travellers cheques are difficult to exchange.
