It depends on the business. It is best to have some of each currency. It was explained to us that they get a better exchange rate with them than the XPF for the New Zealand currency which is where many go for vacation. We are arriving night before cruise. Will need to take cab to and from hotel. Can we secure currency at airport?
Both the staffed currency exchange both and the ATM's are available for every arriving flight. Some have reported occasional outages at the ATM but we have been successful 6 times. Not sure if you can withdraw an odd amount but the benefit would be to get a smaller bill. I was concerned that the taxi might not have change so I then went to the currency exchange booth and they were kind enough to change out one bill for me no charge. Taxi rates are set, no meter. If you don't have local currency I would ask the driver what the fare is and then ask if USD is OK at an exchange of 1: Use XE,Com for the current exchange rate, This is the bank to bank rate so you will get a few lower points on exchange.
Just finished cruising in all the islands. Found every island we visited took US dollar 1 x 1, but I always asked first and all accepted. Interesting though, I found those that took Visa I got a better exchange rate from bias by a about 40 to 50 cents. Should I change money in Australia before I go to Papeete. What average daily amount should I allow. I am not a real souvenir buyer but like a few little pleasures. We will be in TAhiti in March.

Money in French Polynesia
French Polynesia in detail. All top-end and midrange hotels, restaurants, jewellery shops, dive centres and the bigger supermarkets accept credit cards, sometimes exclusively Visa or MasterCard, but they usually require a CFP minimum purchase. You can also pay for Air Tahiti flights with a card. Tipping is not a part of life in French Polynesia.

There's also an automated money exchanger on the left hand side ones as well. You can choose whatever sum subject to your card condition in your own country. Since you're mostly arriving very early or very late or , bank facilities are limited in downtown and you'll most probably be catching a cab. Flagfall dayrate is 1k xpf and xpf per km and nightrate is slightly higher. When you arrive at your hotel you'll probably need 3k xpf. Instead take your euro and exchange it with the hotel maybe or euros per time , as they don't charge extra commission. Tour Guides and Roulotte near the Papeete ship terminal generally accept Euros within limit, don't give an E for a packet of chips, E generally don't pose a problem with no commission.

When should I use credit cards? How much cash should I bring? Is it easy to exchange foreign currency? Is tipping common?
The reason for the creation of these francs was the weakness of the French franc immediately after the Second World War. When France ratified the Bretton Woods Agreement in December , the French franc was devalued in order to set a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar. New currencies were created in the French colonies to spare them the strong devaluation of December
