Atlanta - Notes and Coins
Currency Exchange in Atlanta
You will be hard pressed to find any retailer in Atlanta that accepts anything other than American dollars. Your major credit cards should work in the United States if you live abroad, but make sure you call your card companies first and let them know you are travelling so they don’t cancel your cards when they see transactions popping up from Atlanta.
It is always a good idea to change some money before you go, but leave the majority of your money to change over once you arrive at your destination. Avoid banks to change over your money, instead, select a money exchange bureau either in downtown or at the airport. You can also see if your hotel’s front desk can change money over for you. Traveler’s checks are always a good idea since they are protected, but remember to keep your list of numbers separate from your checks in case you lose them. Be careful when spending US dollars as US currency is all the same size, and essentially the same color.
Banks in Atlanta are numerous, and most are open from nine a.m. to five p.m. each weekday. A few have hours on Saturday mornings as well. Many have ATMs located outside their facilities for easy access to cash.
