Bargaining

Money

Be warned: some Corsican restaurants and hotels, and most chambres d’hôte (B&Bs), don’t accept credit cards. Other places refuse card payments for amounts of less than €15. Always enquire first. ATMs are scarce in rural areas, especially in Cap Corse and L’Alta Rocca, so stock up with euros.
