Which countries use Jordanian dinar?

Only Jordan uses Jordanian dinars. In July 1950, Jordan adopted the dinar as its official currency, replacing the Palestinian pound.

Should I take cash to Jordan?

Absolutely, swapping money before you fly to Jordan is a clever move. Having Jordanian dinars in your pocket as soon as you land means no stress finding a trustworthy exchange service straight away.

Think about it: you’ll need cash for transport from the airport to your accommodation, and after your journey, you’ll likely be peckish, so grabbing a bite is another quick cost.

By securing your dinars ahead of time, you’re set for all these situations. 

Cash in Jordan can come in really handy, especially for everyday spending and wandering off the tourist track. These places might not have card payment options or prefer cash dealings.

Remember, if you come back with extra dinar, you can swap Jordanian dinar to British pound with Manor FX.

Which currency should I take to Jordan?

The local Jordanian dinar is the official currency and your safest bet. It’s widely accepted, so you’ll avoid extra exchange fees. 

Taking dinars means you can pay for anything directly, like cab fares, snacks, or souvenirs, without stressing about finding a place to exchange your cash.

If you end up with extra Jordanian currency after your travels, remember to swap your Jordanian dinar to GBP.

Can you use USD in Jordan?

Yes, you can use USD in Jordan, especially in tourist areas and big hotels. But, it’s still a good idea to have some Jordanian dinars for smaller shops and local places.

Are euros accepted in Jordan?

Euros might be accepted at some tourist spots and big hotels in Jordan, but they’re not widely used. It’s best to have Jordanian dinars for most of your spending.

Can I use my bank card in Jordan?

Yes, you can. Most spots accept major debit and credit cards. Loads of shops, eateries, and hotels in the big cities and popular tourist spots take major debit cards and credit cards without any hassle. This means you can easily settle your hotel bill, eat out, and shop using your card.

However, having some Jordanian dinars with you is always wise. Why? Because in smaller towns, at local markets, or when your using taxis, card payments might not be an option. Having cash ensures you’re never in a bind without a way to pay.

Check with your bank about fees for foreign transactions when using your card abroad. Knowing about these fees in advance can help you to manage your budget better.

How can I minimise ATM fees in Jordan?

To avoid ATM fees, check if your bank has partner banks in Jordan for free withdrawals.

Consider taking out larger sums less often to cut down on fees. But remember, for safety’s sake, it’s not great to carry a lot of cash on you.

A clever move is to grab some dinars from Manor FX at top rates before you head off. This way, you’re sorted from the start!

Is it better to use cash or credit card in Jordan?

Both have their perks. Using your card in big establishments like hotels, shopping centres, and posh restaurants is smooth and convenient. 

However, foreign transaction fees all add up. It’s definitely worth checking with your bank about charges for international purchases.

Meanwhile, cash is a must for smaller buys and in spots where digital payments aren’t common yet. Plus, using cash can sometimes give you a leg up when haggling in local markets, where bartering over prices is the norm.

In a nutshell, the best plan in Jordan is to carry both payment types. This way, you can dive into the local culture and experiences without fretting over payment issues.

How much cash should I take to Jordan?

Figuring out how much cash to take to Jordan depends on several factors, such as your stay duration, your plans, and how you like to travel. Here’s a quick guide.

You can find budget-friendly hotels and apartments for about 15-20 JOD (£15-£20) per night. This is a good option for those watching their pennies.

If you’re after something nicer, mid-range hotels in cities might set you back around 25-50 JOD (£25-£50) per night.

For a bit of luxury, Jordan’s posh spots can vary in price. Depending on how plush you want to go, you could fork out anywhere from a handful to hundreds per night!

So, whether you’re pinching pennies or splashing out, Jordan has various options to fit your travel style.

Can you visit Jordan on a budget?

Budget stays are a bit rare in Jordan, as backpacking isn’t super popular just yet. Hostels or super cheap hotels aren’t easy to find.

On a budget, you’ll likely end up in hotels or apart-hotels, which are like short-term rental flats.

They offer decent value, with clean rooms, a private bathroom, hot water, and often a lounge and one or two bedrooms. Flats usually have kitchens, too, though don’t expect much in the way of cooking equipment.

Is Jordan expensive?

Visiting Jordan can be a bit of a mix, cost-wise. It’s not a super cheap destination, but how much you splash out depends on your travel style.

Things can get pricey in big cities like Amman, especially if you fancy staying in expensive hotels or dining out at high-end restaurants. But there are ways to keep costs down.

Eating at more low-key paces favoured by locals, using public transport, and choosing budget-friendly places to stay can help make your trip easier on the wallet.

So, while Jordan might not be the cheapest place to visit, with a bit of planning, you can find ways to enjoy it without emptying your pockets!

Do you tip in Jordan?

In Jordan, tipping is a nice gesture of ‘thanks’ for good service rather than a must-do. A 10-15% tip is a nice way to show gratitude when eating out.

Jordan’s currency import and export regulations

Jordan lets you bring in and take out currency up to 10,000 dinars (£10,000 approx) or its equivalent without declaring it. If you want to bring in more than that, you just need to declare it when you arrive. The same goes for when you’re heading home.

Remember, it’s always a smart idea to double-check the most current rules before you jet off on your trip. This way, you can steer clear of any unexpected hitches along the way!

Yes, the Jordanian dinar is pegged to the US dollar. This means its value is fixed in relation to the dollar, helping to keep the exchange rate stable.

No, the Jordanian dinar (currency in Jordan) and the Iraqi dinar (currency in Iraq) are not the same. 

Jordan and Iraq use separate currencies. Each has its own value and is used in its own country.

Yes, many travellers need a visa to enter Jordan. However, it depends on your nationality and the length of your stay. Some nationalities can get a visa on arrival, while others might need to apply in advance. Checking the latest visa requirements before your trip is a good idea.

Jordan usually doesn’t have specific vaccination requirements. However, it’s wise to be up-to-date on routine vaccines like measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, and yearly flu shots. 

Depending on your travel plans, vaccines for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and rabies might also be recommended. Before your trip, always check with a doctor or a travel clinic for the most current advice.

The best months to visit Jordan are typically March to May (spring) and September to November (autumn). During these times, the weather is pleasant, not too hot or cold, and it is perfect for exploring Jordan’s outdoor sights like Petra and the Wadi Rum desert.

  1. Petra: Known as the “Rose City,” Petra is famous for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system. This ancient city, carved out of pink sandstone cliffs, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
  2. Wadi Rum: Often called the “Valley of the Moon,” Wadi Rum is a stunning desert landscape known for its towering sandstone mountains, wide sandy valleys, and ancient petroglyphs. It’s a popular spot for jeep tours, camel treks, and camping under the stars.
  3. The Dead Sea: Famous for being the lowest point on earth and its hyper-saline water, it allows visitors to float effortlessly due to its high buoyancy. The mud from the Dead Sea is also known for its therapeutic properties.
  4. Jerash: Home to some of the best-preserved Roman ruins outside Italy, Jerash offers a glimpse into the grandeur of the Roman Empire. The site includes the Oval Plaza, the collonaded streets, and the ancient city’s theatres.
  5. Amman: Jordan’s capital city, Amman, blends the ancient with the modern. The city’s highlights include the ancient Roman Theatre, the Citadel, which offers panoramic views of the city, and the Jordan Museum, which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls, among other significant archaeological finds.
