Out with the old, in with the new

Replacing the old Taiwan dollar, the new Taiwan dollar (TWD) was first circulated in 1949. Locally, it’s known as the yuan, the name of the Chinese currency. It only became the legal currency of Taiwan in 2000.

Tipping in restaurants or taxis isn’t the norm at all in Taiwan. In restaurants, you may find that a 10% service charge is added to your bill, and in this instance you are certainly not under any obligation to tip anything in addition to this. Taxi drivers will instinctively hand you over all your change, and will not expect you to tip.

Restricted currency

Taiwan dollars (TWD) is somewhat of a restricted currency, as access to coins and notes is at best limited outside of Morocco itself, while the country has an import and export limit of 1000 TWD.

To get round this, we offer a service to help fund all the essentials for your trip to this stunning part of North Africa. With our Globe Cash Passport, you’re able to pay for things wherever MasterCard is accepted, making it the perfect option for travel in Morocco. All you need to do is put some GBP on before you leave and you’re all set!

Alternatively, euros are accepted by a number of major retailers, hotels and restaurants in Morocco, particularly in the cities of Marrakesh, Rabat and Casablanca.
