Over 2015, travelers will tour Tibet (http://www.tibetctrip.com/tibet-tours.html) in record numbers, however none of them want hassles when accessing or using their hard earned money. Traveling in Tibet is a unique experience and with it can come a way of doing business that’s different from what many travelers are used to. Lhasa based Tibet Travel Agency (http://www.tibetctrip.com) Tibet Ctrip-TCTS prepares visitors for their adventure by filling them in on what to expect.

  • Plan on making nearly all purchases in cash. With the exception of a few high-end hotels and retail outlets, travelers should not expect credit cards to be an option. Should one find themselves in a pinch, major banks in Lhasa, such as Bank of China, can process cash advances from some major credit cards.
  • Reliable ATM’s are widely available and accept foreign ATM cards. If a particular bank’s ATM doesn’t work, don’t panic! Another one is likely around the corner. Be sure that all group members alert their banks of foreign ATM transactions before leaving home. This will help ensure that the tour of Tibet (http://www.tibetctrip.com/tibet-tours.html) goes smoothly.
  • The local currency is the Chinese Yuan (RMB). Travel groups coming from Mainland China would be wise to spend Yuan coins before coming to Tibet, as they are typically not accepted. Currency exchange services are widely available with banks offering the best rates.

Trouble accessing or using money when far from home can be a nightmare; travelers who do their homework can head off hassles they might encounter while traveling in Tibet (http://www.tibetctrip.com/index.html). The main thing to remember is that cash will be needed for all purchases and credit cards are not accepted.The 2015 tour season is coming up quickly so now is the time to start planning!
