More bang for your buck

The US dollar is one of the most dominant reserve currencies in the world and is also the main tender for several other countries or regions outside the United States, including the Caribbean, Ecuador and El Salvador.

Don’t be surprised to hear dollars being referred to as ‘bucks’ when you are out and about, this is a commonly used nickname! You may also hear 5 cent coins referred to as a ‘nickel’, a 10 cent coin as a ‘dime’ and a 25 cent coin as a ‘quarter’.

Tipping is standard practice across America and you will be expected to pay up to 15% on top of your meal – or even 20% for upmarket restaurants. Thankfully, portion sizes tend to be very generous indeed, so you’re unlikely to feel short-changed!

Frequently used banknotes

The US dollar comes in seven different denominations – 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar bills. As coins are nowhere near as common as they are in the UK, it is wise to try and organise your bills in order of value to save you scrambling around for the right cash.

A good way to purchase currency without waiting at a bank. The rates are so - so but that's expected with currency sellers. Easy pick up at Post Office with ID, look out for online promo vouchers when purchasing for discount.
