Paying 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$. 

Paying with card

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.
