Money & costs
There’s an exchange counter and ATMs at the airport. Banking hours are Monday to Friday 9.30am to 3.30pm and Saturday 9.30am to 11.30am. Banks will change travellers cheques but can be very slow. Moneychangers are far quicker, and some change travellers cheques as well as cash. They also have more convenient hours than the banks, as they stay open evenings and Sundays.
