The Pakistani Rupee (PKR) is divided into 100 paise. Travellers cheques (best carried in US Dollars or Pounds Sterling) are accepted at most banks, upmarket hotels and major shops. Larger shops and hotels commonly accept credit cards, and ATMs are available in big cities. Banking hours are generally 9am to 1.30pm Monday to Saturday, but close earlier on Fridays. Bargaining is expected in street markets and small stores.
