Should I exchange money before I travel to Oman?

What is the best currency to bring to Oman?

The Omani rial is your best bet, avoiding extra exchange fees and ensuring you’re set for any purchase, from taxi rides to souvenirs.

Can I use my bank card in Oman?

Yes, most places accept major debit and credit cards, especially in cities and tourist spots. But it’s wise to carry some Omani rials for smaller towns or taxis where cards may not be accepted. Check with your bank about any foreign transaction fees to manage your budget effectively.

Should I use cash in Oman?

Cash in Oman is handy for day-to-day transactions and in areas where card facilities are scarce or non-existent. If you have leftover Omani currency, remember to convert your Omani rial to GBP.

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

Both have advantages. Credit cards and debit cards are convenient in larger establishments, but cash is key for smaller transactions and bargaining in local markets. Carrying both ensures you’re prepared for all situations.

How much cash should I take to Oman?

Having some cash on hand for things like taxis, tips, and local markets is wise. Let’s break down your budget:

  • Daily spending: Consider around 15-20 OMR (£30-£40) per day for budget travel. This will cover simple meals, transportation, and entrance fees.
  • Eating out: A meal at a local restaurant might cost you about 3-4 OMR (£6-£8).
  • Taxis and transport: Budget about 4-6 OMR (£8-£12) per day for moving around, depending on your plans.
  • Souvenirs and extras: If you’re keen on shopping, you might want to add a bit extra.

While credit cards are accepted in cities and tourist areas, cash is essential in smaller towns and for local vendors. 

Starting with 80-120 OMR (£160-£240) in cash is a good idea, and you can use ATMs to withdraw more if needed. Don’t forget to inform your bank about your travel plans to avoid card issues.

How can I avoid ATM fees in Oman?

Use partner banks for free withdrawals and consider larger, less frequent withdrawals to minimise fees. Pre-ordering Omani rials from Manor FX at great rates can also save you money. 

How does tipping work in Oman?

Tipping isn’t mandatory but is a kind gesture for good service, usually around 10-15% in restaurants.

Is Oman a cheap country to visit?

Oman isn’t the cheapest destination, but don’t let that hold you back! You can stretch your pounds further by diving into local experiences and making smart choices.

Opt for local eateries and markets over tourist spots to save money and get a real taste of Omani culture. 

Don’t forget to explore Oman’s natural beauty, which often comes free of charge. A little research can uncover low-cost or free activities that enrich your trip.

Always check the latest travel advice from official sources before you go. They’ll have the most up-to-date information on safety, health guidelines, and any travel restrictions.

Oman is a place with rich traditions and polite manners. Here are some essential etiquette tips to help you fit right in:

  • Dress modestly. Cover your shoulders and knees, especially when you’re outside tourist areas.
  • Say hello. Greet people with a warm “As-salaam alaykum” (peace be upon you).
  • Use your right hand for eating, greeting, and giving or receiving things. It’s seen as more respectful.
  • Accept hospitality. If offered coffee or dates, it’s polite to accept.
  • Remove your shoes when entering someone’s home.

By following these simple tips, you’ll show respect for Omani culture and make your trip even more enjoyable.
