The official currency of Armenia is the Dram (AMD), which is divided into 100 luma. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks as well as many hotels, with US dollars being the most widely recognised and easily changed currency, though notes should be in good condition. Credit cards are accepted at stores and restaurants in the capital. ATMs are now widely available in cities as well as small towns. It is advisable to carry plenty of small change in local currency as shops and markets will often not have change.
