FAQ Details - Currency & Money Exchange

What is the local currency and the exchange rate in the Dominican Republic?

The official currency is the Dominican Peso (RD$) - the actual exchange rate is about 1:37 (1 U$ Dollar = 37.50 Pesos)


Can i pay in U$ Dollars or Euros in the Dominican Republic?

Although the U$ Dollar is not an official currency in the Dominican Republic it is accepted almost everywhere - however you are much better on paying in Dominican Pesos - normally if you pay in U$ Dollars a much worse exchange rate will be applied than the rate you would get at an exchange facility or a bank - same for Euros but even worse exchange rates will be applied


Where should i change U$ Dollars in Dominican Pesos?

You can change at banks or Money Exchange facilities which you will see everywhere especially in Tourist Areas. Actual exchange rate is 1.00 U$ = 38.20 RD$. Do not change money inside the SDQ airport at "Globo Cambio" - they rip you off!

Dominican Shuttles provided excellent service, timely responses, and overall was a great experience. Having traveled to the DR for the first time, didn't know what to expect but Dominican Shuttles provided a level of ease, from airport to Santo Domingo and then to Punta Cana. Strongly recommend their services and will use them again when I am in the area next time. Thanks Thomas...
Excellent service honest & reliable. We highly recommend. They were right there waiting our arrival & pick up return was the same. Thank you!!!
We have used both air and car service. They are always on time with 1st rate service. Thomas and staff are very knowledgeable about the DR.Regards,Tim
All 15 of us--with multiple arrivals and departures over a two week period and several Dominican Shuttles-organized excursions--could not have been happier with our experience! Our time in Las Terrenas was amazing largely thanks to the reliable, safe services provided by the extremely knowledgeable people at Dominican Shuttles. I would not hesitate for a moment in recommending them to any group, large or small, traveling to the Dominican Republic. Thank you for making our trip so incredible, Thomas and staff!
Wir hatten eine Fahrt von Punta Cana nach Puerto Plata in mehreren Etappen mit Dominican Shuttle Service geplant und durchgefuehrt. Wir waren mit dem Service rundum zufrieden und koennen diese Agentur absolut empfehlen.
