The unit of local currency is the Tanzania Shilling (Tsh). American dollars are acceptable in most places around town (Note: traveler checks are often not accepted). Credit cards are accepted only in big hotels, and if you do manage to find a place to use them there will usually be a surcharge of at least 5% Please do not bring US$ notes issued before 2003, as they are not accepted here!
In Arusha, Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar there are ATM’s where you can get local currency with your visa or MasterCard.
