Réunion is an overseas département of France and therefore, since 2002, the unit of currency is the Euro, divided into 100 cents. There are plenty of banks and ATMs on the island, and most shops and hotels accept major credit cards (though most require a minimum amount for payments). Banks are generally open on weekdays from 8am to 4pm. Most businesses are required to display their prices in their windows and restaurants and hotels should have their rates visible from the exterior.
