Bargaining

Bargaining is not a part of life in Réunion; the price quoted is the price you are expected to pay. However, haggling over the price of goods (but not food) is OK in markets.

Money

ATM-clad commercial banks can be found along the main drag in St-Gilles. The post office also has an ATM.
