You’ve got sun, sea and sand. But have you got your travel money?

The East Caribbean dollar is the main currency of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Anguilla and Montserrat.

In a region that is entirely islands, there are various jurisdictions. Many use the East Caribbean dollar, but not all. For instance, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Barbados and the US Virgin Islands are all in the same vicinity, but none of them use the East Caribbean dollar.

Firstly, make sure you’re getting the currency you need. Then head to Post Office to buy your currency online or in thousands of participating branches. You can pick it up at your nearest branch, or have it delivered to your home. Use our branch finder tool to find your nearest participating branch.

How far could your East Caribbean dollars go?

Unlike with most other currencies, the East Caribbean dollar isn’t specific to one particular country. So its value will depend on where you’re visiting.

Antigua and Barbuda: Prices are roughly equivalent to what they would be in the USA, with hotels ranging from $100 to $300 for standard accommodation and as much as you want to spend for absolute luxury. Drinks out may be slightly cheaper than the UK but overall, prices are comparable.

Dominica: The prices in Dominica can be lower than Antigua and Barbuda, with budget accommodation clocking in at between £30 and £60 per night. Top-end hotels can charge upwards of £150.

Grenada: It is common for US dollars to be used in Grenada, however it may work out cheaper if you pay in XCD. Plastic is commonly accepted. Staying can be cost effective, with budget accommodation at around £50 per night and a beer out costing roughly £1.60.

St Kitts and Nevis: St Kitts and Nevis are two different islands, with St Kitts the larger. Less expensive times to visit are May and November (unless you go when the hurricane risk is highest). Credit cards are widely accepted. Taxis are often the best way to get around.

St Lucia: Moderately-priced, with budget resorts available from £50 per night and higher-end resorts upward of £400. Most accommodation offers package deals with varying amounts of price inclusion, so you should have a good idea of your spend when you book your holiday.

St Vincent and the Grenadines: Each island in this small archipelago has a different character and price range, from the relatively inexpensive Mayreau to the exclusive Mustique – reserved entirely for the rich and famous.

Anguilla: This popular tourist island has a price range more familiar to British travellers, with hotel accommodation ranging from £65 to £300 and above. Drinks in bars are comparable to much of the UK.

Montserrat: The island of Montserrat is still recovering from devastating volcanic activity but this relative absence of tourists has its attractions. Credit cards are unlikely to be accepted, and you will need XCD to make purchases rather than US dollars.
