Ariary (Ar)


Bargaining is commonplace in markets, when buying souvenirs and when negotiating taxi fares. It isn't in restaurants, bars or hotels.

When haggling, try to get a reference price from locals as a guide but bear in mind that many Malagasy think it is fair that foreigners should be charged more than locals for the same good or service.


There are no banks or ATMs in Ranohira. The nearest bank is in Ihosy, 91km away.
