Why not play it safe and take a best-buy credit card and use that for payment?  Something like the Halifax Clarity card will even give you perfect exchange rates on cash withdrawals if cash becomes necessary.


It's much cheaper to use a best-buy credit card than exchange cash, as the exchange rate is never as good.  My personal favourite combination is the Nationwide FlexPlus debit card for cash withdrawals and the Nationwide Select credit card for purchases.

You will find that all these countries will take US dollars. I know this for sure as I world cruise  a lot.

Or use a credit card if buying larger items or getting cash out of the ATM. Halifax Clarity Card or Post Office credit do not charge overseas fees.
