Banks in the French Polynesia

Banks are open from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm. They are closed on Saturday and Sunday, except some of them which are open on Saturday morning. In Papeete, they are open at lunchtime but usually close for one hour between 12:00pm to 1:00pm elsewhere.

There are ATMs around most of the islands where you can withdraw cash with the usual international credit cards.

Currency in Tahiti

The local currency is the Pacific Franc (xpf or cpf).
Its value is linked to the euro so its conversion into euro is always the same: € 1.00 = xpf 119.332.

Euros and dollars are only accepted in touristy places.
