FAQs

Which are the accepted currencies in your bureaux de change located at Piarco International Airport?

What is the exchange rate for the Trinidadian dollar compared to euro and US dollar?
Exchange rates suffer continuous fluctuations. For this reason, we recommend checking the rates published at our exchange outlets.
Is it advisable to travel to Europe with Trinidadian dollars?
Trinidad and Tobago is a country that, despite being located only 11 kilometres from Venezuela, does not establish many commercial relations with this country. There are not direct flights to Europe either, although there are flights to the United Kingdom via Saint Lucia. The Trinidadian dollar (TTD) is the local currency in Trinidad and Tobago and it does not have purchase or use option in other countries, so it is highly likely that you cannot exchange your Trinidadian dollars abroad. For that reason, we recommend you to exchange the local money you have left before travelling back to Europe.
Is it necessary to show any document in order to make an exchange transaction in Trinidad and Tobago?
According to our internal policy to fight against money laundering, we require a valid identification document (e.g. a passport) in order to register the personal details of every Customer who carries out a transaction at our exchange outlets, regardless of the amount.
