How the rand adds up
The rand (ZAR) arrived in 1961, the same year that South Africa became an official Republic. There are 100 cents to every rand, but one and two cent coins have fallen out of use due to inflation.
When it comes to tour guides, taxis and meals, it's customary to leave around 10% of your bill as a tip. Give this directly to your waiter/tour guide/taxi driver and if the service was really good, you can round it up to 15%.
Frequently used banknotes
The notes you'll use in South Africa are for the value of 10 (green), 20 (brown), 50 (red), 100 (blue) and 200 (orange) rand. Each note includes an image of Nelson Mandela as part of the design, as well as one of the many animals native to South Africa.

I was not aware that you could order foreign currency online as easy as this process was. When I first started to shop around for the best rate, travelex offered a competitive rate and the overall process was simple. I was confident of the security aspect and I was impressed with the collaboration with the post office for easy collection.Terri
One less worry when you are so busy preparing your trip.
Great service. Fast. One less worry when you are so busy preparing your trip. Then when you arrive at your destination you dont have to go to the bank to change your money. It can be time consuming and dangerous in some places. Travelex online rates are a very good deal. Will chose Travelex again for my next trip.Jorge Raul
