Money & costs


You shouldn’t have much problem accessing your cash in Taipei as most Taiwanese banks are connected to either the Cirrus or Plus network. These networks generally accept foreign cards from banks aligned with those systems. You’ll also find cash machines in the strangest places, such as McDonalds and 7-Elevens. We’ve found the latter to be especially trouble free in dispensing cash for out-of-town cardholders. The ATM on the ground floor of the Nova Computer Arcade across from Taipei Main Station also takes foreign cards. Most Taiwanese ATMs ask you to chose a language before entering your PIN.
