to the US Dollar (US$1=BD$1). US currency is accepted almost
everywhere and other major currencies can be exchanged at banks and
bureaux de change. Banking hours vary, though most are open
weekdays from 9am to 4.30pm. Visa, MasterCard and American Express,

available. To avoid additional charges, it is best to carry
travellers cheques in US dollars. Visitors are advised to exchange
all their Bermudan Dollars before leaving, as it is impossible to
