Travel, Currency and Money saving tips for Aruba


The official currency in Aruba is the Florin, however, US Dollars are widely used and accepted, even when prices are specified in Florin. Bear in mind that very little is produced in Aruba and the restaurants and shopping are marketed at an upscale audience, so things aren't cheap. On top of that, Aruba has a 3% sales charge, this is sometimes charged at point of sale and sometimes incorporated into the stated price so check before buying. The upside of a ritzy location is that the standard of living is fairly high amongst Arubans so the local buses are clean and will cost a lot less than a taxi for your trip from and to the airport.


Travel money for Aruba


Save money and time by Ordering your Aruban Florin online from Travelex, you get better rates and can pick up the AWG cash locally or even on travel day at the airport.

Another popular option is to use a Pre-paid Travel Card. Your Debit/Credit Card provider will charge you 2% from market mid-rate, but your bank may also charge an extra 3% as an “Overseas Transaction Charge” plus “Overseas ATM” fees for withdrawing cash.

For card purchases if offered a choice of currencies always select to Pay in Aruban Florin otherwise you may get much worst exchange rates.
