Money issues / best currency to take to Tonga

by raandaka Online Now Jul 1, 2011 at 3:04 PM

I'm wondering how to best take money for our trip and in what currency. Would it be best to takeUS in cash? I would also appreciate other advice re ATM accessibility / functionality; how widely credit card or EFPOS might be accepted?

Many thanks.

    No worries mate! For you, the Aussie dollar will do just fine. The Tongan currency is called pa'anga but as far as I know it is not convertible, but common currency are the three dollars, AUD, NZ, and U.S, as well as the Japanese Yen, and is rated against those four currencies. One Australian Dollar is TOP 1.85.
