Currency & Best Way to Get Money?
Currency in Jaipur is the Indian rupee. Bring cash, in crisp dollar bills, and exchange at the airport when you arrive. Check www.xe.com for current exchange rates. ATMs, while prevalent, do not always have money and withdrawal amounts are often controlled by the government. Luxury hotels will often exchange small amounts. Credit and debit cards are accepted by major hotels and shops, but cash is preferred for small vendors and markets.
The country has more than 1,500 dialects but Hindi and English are the common languages. Almost everyone in the tourist trade speaks English.
