- Resort Islands
The Maldivian rufiyaa (MVR) is divided into 100 laari. The resorts in the Maldives are generally expensive and travellers should ensure they bring sufficient funds. ATMs are available, but it's best not to rely. Major credit cards are accepted at most resorts and hotels. US Dollars can be exchanged at the airport, banks, or hotels. Guests staying at resorts can settle their accounts in hard foreign currency (US Dollars are best), or with credit cards. Banks are usually closed on Fridays and Saturdays.
