Money Matters Money Matters

Money Matters

India's currency is the Indian Rupee (Rs), which is available in denominations of Rs.1000, Rs.500, Rs.100, Rs.50, Rs.20, Rs.10, and Rs.5 notes. Sometimes you may even come across notes of Rs.1 and Rs.2, which are very rare and can barely get you anything in the marketplace; therefore you should just treat them as souvenirs. A rupee consists of 100 paisa. Its essential for tourists to bring a little bit of cash to exchange for rupees at the airport, which can then help them purchase a taxi to your destination and pay for a meal or two, then for the rest of your money you can get it from an ATM later. It's also important to carry small amounts of cash, and to haggle for the price with the taxi cab driver. When a taxi cab driver sees a foreigner they may try to get more out of you then needed, therefore its important to be smart with your money. It's also a good idea to carry a credit card when you travel, for purchases you prefer not to use cash for. Its also advised to bring along some U.S dollars traveler's cheques along with you as they are accepted just about everywhere in India and are also the easiest currency to exchange.
