Shell out your dinars

The dinar has been the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan’s official currency since 1950, replacing the Palestinian pound. Although generally more expensive than some of its neighbouring countries, such as Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, there are still plenty of bargains to be found here.

A meal at a high-end restaurant will typically cost just shy of 11 JOD per head and a tip of around 10% will be expected. Elsewhere, frugal sorts can pick up some decent street food for as little as 1 JOD. Tipping in Jordan is more or less mandatory, but the amount really is up to you – inclusive service charges rarely go to the person that you dealt with, so a few token dinar will be much appreciated.

Frequently used banknotes

The dinar is exchanged in five different note denominations: 1 (dark green – also available as a coin), 5 (orange), 10 (blue), 20 (light green) and 50 (pink). Several coins are also in circulation, including smaller denominations known as “qirsh” or “piastres” (there are 100 qirsh to one dinar), but the most commonly used are ¼, ½ and 1 dinar coins – you may want to carry a stash of these as they are useful for smaller purchases and tips.
