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!

My experience of Travelex
The Travelex credit card I purchased worked perfectly and so was highly convenient. I found that topping it up via the Travlex website was straightforward. I appreciate a good product and good service which made my travel considerably less stressful - once I had tried the card and fohnd it worked!Kyle Ralph Wilson

The idea of ordering money online was quite easy but I did not receive a notification when my cash was ready to collect and I had to follow up. The cash had bee delivered 2 days earlier than original planned which meant my post office was about to send it back. Thankfully they hadn't sent it back or else that could have caused major inconvenience when our trip is only a few days awayMishSimpson
Great service, quick turnaround - my order was ready 3 days before my allocated pick up day. Competitive rate.Nat
