Here's how much you can expect to pay for things in Taiwan:
ATMs are widely available in banks and convenience stores across Taiwan, but will be more difficult to find in villages. ATMs often have daily withdrawal limits of around 20,000 NT$.
Cards are widely accepted in most mid-top end restaurants and hotels, but for hostels, small businesses and street stalls, you will definitely need cash. If you do pay with card, always choose to pay in local currency to avoid extra conversion fees, and be aware that if not using a prepaid card, you may be charged a transaction fee to pay with card.
Not customary, but 10-15% is appreciated
£1 will get you 38.28 Taiwan New Dollars (NT$). For context, that's 1,000 Taiwan New Dollars for around £26.
Notes: 100, 200, 500, and 1000 NT$ (also 2,000 NT$, but these are quite rare)
Coins: 1, 5, 10 and 50 NT$ (also 20 NT$, but these are very rare)
No problem. We'll buy back any notes you have leftover at excellent rates, leaving you with more cash in your pocket (and a tidier desk drawer).
We will buy back up to GBP300 worth of currency per order, as per our terms and conditions.
