Tahiti And French Polynesia Currency
The unit of currency in French Polynesia is the French Pacific Franc (XPF), divided into 100 centimes. The exchange rate is fairly stable as it is linked to the Euro. Banks throughout the islands are open mainly on weekdays only and are the best place to change foreign currency; rates of exchange are not as good at hotels. There are ATMs on a few of the islands, but they shouldn't be relied upon. Credit cards and US currency are readily accepted on the main islands. Tourism taxes are levied for accommodation and activities.
