When travelling in Tibet many find themselves surprised by the differences in using money between Tibet and their home country. As a general rule of thumb, credit cards are not accepted in Tibet and travelers should be prepared to use cash for nearly all their purchases. In order to avoid money related hassles, Lhasa based travel agency Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) encourages travelers to familiarize themselves with these kinds of differences in advance of their trip. To help travelers prepare, TCTS has released newly updated travel tips for using money in Tibet.
Tibet tours are a fantastic way to discover its fascinating culture and enjoy spectacular scenery; keeping in mind these few travel tips can help prevent money hassles that distract travelers from enjoying their time in Tibet. Although Tibet has seen its tourism infrastructure develop rapidly in recent years, travelers must come prepared for differences between Tibet and their home country. For the most part, credit cards are not accepted and, as is the case for all foreign travel, banks may place a security hold on ATM cards if they are not informed that the cardholder is traveling. Travelers who arrive prepared can head off many potential hassles; for any other Tibet travel related questions, Tibet Travel Agency TCTS is more than happy to help.
