    2) If travelers do bring USD, bring small bills ($20 $10 $5 $1). Old $100 bills are not accepted and vendors are reluctant to accept new ones.

    3) Travelers can get Schillings if needed, but there are very few ATMS. Travelers will need to plan ahead with the guide to get cash. It is best to withdraw a large amount at once since there are so few opportunities.

    4) Most stores and restaurants will accept major credit cards, however they will charge you a fee (typically 4-5%).
