Los Angeles Currency Guide
The currency in Los Angeles is the US Dollar.
ATMs in Los Angeles are conveniently located all throughout the city. If you plan on withdrawing cash from your account while in Los Angeles, don't forget to notify your bank and tell them your travel dates. Also be aware that international ATM fees can be quite expensive, so it's a good idea to check with your bank as to how much you will be charged before you go.
Be sure to carry some cash with you at all times during your LA stay, particularly when first entering the country, and keep some dollar bills handy for tipping. Avoid paying fees and commissions by pre-purchasing US Dollars from Travel Money Oz before you fly.
Don't have a credit card? For safe spending, purchase a prepaid Multi-currency Cash Passport™ to bring with you to Los Angeles instead. A Multi-currency Cash Passport is a travel money card that allows you to load your money in the form of US Dollars onto the card, which you can then access at various ATMS and also use as a credit card wherever MasterCard® is accepted.
