Money & costs


There are a growing number of ATMs, but only the Crédit Populaire d’Algérie (blvd de la Soummam) accepts foreign bank cards and even that is not guaranteed, although you can also withdraw cash on a Visa card during banking hours. Banque Centrale d’Algeŕie and Société Générale d’Algérie (both on blvd de la Soummam) change money, the latter also running a Western Union money transfer service. You may be able to change foreign currency on the street near the Main post office on rue Mohamed Khamisti.
