Iranian Currency


One of the interesting things that the first time travelers to Iran face, is that Iran has two currencies. The regular currency is Iranian Rials, RLS, and the currency which people use informally is Toman. Each Toman is equal to 10 Rials. Toman is used on a daily basis such as shopping and paying a taxi but Rial which is the printed currency is mostly used in banks. Due to sanctions, the tourists who travel to Iran cannot use their Visa or Master card or to withdraw any cash from ATM. So the travelers must bring only cash for their entire stay.US dollars and Euros are the most preferred in Iran’s banks or the private exchange offices named "Sarrafi".Our travelers from France express their gratitude to Uppersia team especially their tour guide, Mohamad, for providing the last details of a trip to Iran. They strongly believed that “Iran is full of mystery and you should travel to Iran under the guidance of a local agent, who is aware of the smallest changes of the country.”
