Pakistan Currency


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 5pm, Monday to Thursday, but close earlier on Fridays and on weekends. Bargaining is expected in street markets and small stores.
