Why Order Travel Money With TUI?
Get the most out of your pesos in the Dominican Republic
If you’re off to the Dominican Republic for some sand, sea and sunshine, make sure you have less to think about while you catch those rays, and get some spending money sorted before you go. US dollars are widely accepted, but the main currency is the Dominican peso.
The exchange rate between the pound and the peso varies, but as a rough guide, the average was around RD$65.43 to every £1 in 2018.
Where to get Dominican pesos
You can order and collect your travel money from TUI at your nearest TUI Store, or, if you prefer, you can buy it from us online.
TUI’s handy, multi-currency Travel Money card carries up to 13 currencies for your travels. You can use it just like a debit card in over 36 million locations worldwide. Fees will apply in the Dominican Republic.
