Please help, my first time.
Using dollars as a guide, we have 5, 10 and 25 cents, then $1, $5, $10 and the $20 (and of course the 50 and the 100).
When converting into shekels at the airport, what should I expect?
What be the equivalent of a $1 and $5 bill in shekels and can I request them to give me smaller denominations, for taxi, food, etc.?
And since I am not coming into the country with any shekels, what is the average amount that a tourist will exchange for say, to use for the first week in order to avoid having to go back and forth to the ATM? Just for misc. items such as taxi, snacks, cheap souvenirs, etc.
I am also hoping to use my AMEX or MasterCard most of the time, if they will accept them.
Thank you for your kind help.
