Suggested money tip when arriving and travelling in Fiji:
- Bring around NZD$300 in cash which you can use as a safety net and exchange at most resorts.
- Withdraw the amount of FJD you think you will need for your stay.
- Avoid airport money exchange kiosks - they most likely offer the worst exchange rates. ATMs give you the market exchange rate without the greedy commission.
- Leftover FJD? If you have a small amount of FJD remaining, you can use them to settle your hotel bill extras, transfers back to the airport and/or apply them to a duty free purchase on departure (you can pay part cash, part card).
