Money

There are plenty of banks and private moneychangers in Saddar and along Chundrigar Rd; ATMs are equally common. The airport banks are open 24 hours. It’s easier to change cash though – travellers cheques will probably find you directed to the American Express office at the Shaheen Complex:

American Express (2630260; Shaheen Complex, Dr Ziauddin Ahmad Rd; 9am-1pm & 2-5pm Mon-Thu, 9am-12.30pm & 3-5pm Fri, 9am-noon Sat) Also has a Western Union counter for international money transfers. There’s also a branch of HSBC and a 24-hour ATM in the same complex.
