Paying with Mastercard


My husband and I will spend a few days in Bandos in February.

We're deciding whether to bring any cash with us or not. Is it possible to make a payment with Mastercard when checking out???

Hi Goga

Mastercard is absolutely fine - it's what we always use. Much better than carrying a lot of cash. Only cash needed ($US) is for tips and purchases from local islands or at the airport.

exactly as SL says .. you will need USD in small denominations only for tips and small expenses . anything you purchas at the resort gets billed to the room and paid with major cc

Mastercard and US dollars are all you need. Avoid the local currency.
