The currency is the Philippine Peso (₱, code PHP).
The change is roughly, as of 2017:
1 € (EUR) for more than 50 ₱.
1 Fr. (CHF) for more than 50 ₱.
1 £ (GBP) for more than 60 ₱.
1 Kr. (DKK, SEK, NOK) for between 5.60 and 7.20 ₱.
1 $ (USD) for less than 50 ₱.
1 $ (AUD or CAD) for less than 40 ₱.
1 元 (CNY) for more than 7 ₱.
More than 2 ¥ (JPY) for 1 ₱.
So 100 Pesos are worth around:
Less than 2 British Pounds.
2 Euros, 2 US Dollars or 2 Swiss Francs.
2½ Australian or Canadian Dollars
14 Danish Crowns.
16 Norwegian Crowns.
18 Swedish Crowns.
ATM / Change
You can withdraw money both in Manila and in Sablayan (4 ATMs).
Maximum 10 000 ₱ (200 €/$) per withdrawal.
200 ₱ fees per withdrawal - plus exchange fees.
It is a good idea though to bring Euros, Dollars or other foreign currencies, and change them in Manila - the rate is better in the small change offices than when you withdraw money with the card ;0)
You can preferably pay us in Pesos.
We also accept Euros and US Dollars, with an exchange fee of 3% compared to the daily Google change - and the change will be given in Pesos.
Bank transfers are officially not allowed to our private accounts, but in case you cannot get any cash we could arrange this way (accounts in PHP, EUR and DKK).
I.e. you cannot withdraw more than 200 €/$ per day.
And be aware that many banks now automatically block your card after the very first withdrawal in the Philippines.
So be sure to inform them priorily to your departure, that you will travel in the Philippines.
