Venezuela Money, Budgeting & Tips Info

It's always a good idea to arrive in South America with some cash in USD. This rings true for Australians and Europeans as well; the exchange rate is always better with USD than with the Euro or any other currency. It's also a good idea to bring at least 2 types of credit card, in case one is not accepted. In Venezuela especially, it is best to deal strictly in USD.

Make sure to tell your bank in advance that you will be traveling to Venezuela. ATMs are plentiful in major cities as well as some small towns - but be sure your ATM card has a 4-digit PIN. Credit cards accepted include Visa, MasterCard, AmericanExpress, and Diners Club, but some merchants and restaurants will add a credit card transaction fee.

Please note, that our standard tour packages always include all breakfasts, all hotel nights, all transfers, tours, entrance fees, and taxes. Some lunches and dinners also may be included; consult your itinerary. Generally, you'll only need to budget for tipping and meals not included in the itinerary.

As for tipping: don't feel obligated to tip taxi drivers or hotel porters. Professional tour guides appreciate a $5 tip per day, and private drivers $2-3 per day. For exceptional private guides, you may want to tip $10.
