Bargaining

Bargaining is not really normal anywhere in Martinique, except perhaps at arts-and-crafts markets aimed at tourists.

Money

Martinique uses the euro. Hotels, restaurants and car rental agencies accept most credit and debit cards. ATMs are common across the island and it's no problem accessing money with international cards.

Tipping is not normally expected in Martinique, though it's polite to round up your bill to the nearest euro, and to give a tip for any exceptional service.
