Euro vs US$

Recommended Posts

Hi. We are aware that vendors at some destinations, particularly islands using ec$ will take US$. Does anyone know if US$ can be used in port towns in Barbados, Martinique, or Guadeloupe?

 

Thanks.

When we went to Martinique Euros are required by most all vendor and tour operators/taxis. We brought Euros with us to Martinique and plan to do the same when we visit Guadaloupe.

Martininique and Guadaloupe are both overseas departments of France , and as such are considered part of mainland France whose official currency is the Euro

You'll have no problem whatsoever using the US Dollar in Barbados.

Never had a problem in Martinique most places.

Guadeloupe was the only place in the Caribbean we've found that had places that did not want our US Dollar except for a few places ....

Agree with above but where USD were no used I had no problems using my credit card, make sure you have no foreign transaction fees.
