Bhutan unit of currency is Ngultrum (Nu.), which is at parity with Indian rupee. Tourists are advised to carry their money in the form of Travelers cheques and cash. Visa, American Express is accepted only in few shops only if you buy goods worth of US$ 100 minimum. We recommend our clients to carry some amount in cash for personal expenses, tips and incidental expenses. The extra money as precautionary measure is always welcome. We do not entertain Visa or any credit cards to make tour payment. If you are traveling alone or with a friend (we call FITs), the tour payment is accepted directly either in cash or TC, but for group of 3 people and above, you need to wire transfer the money well in advance to enable us to process your visa.
