Samoa Currency Guide


Samoa uses the Tala.


ATM facilities can be found throughout the islands of Upolu and Savai’i in Samoa in the airports, hotels, resorts and supermarkets. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don’t forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes.


Before you travel it is important to convert some of your Australian dollars into Samoa Tala to have with you when you arrive. Samoa Tala are available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly. Take plenty of Tala with you if you are visiting anywhere outside the main areas.

 Credit Cards

For large purchases, it’s a good idea to bring a credit card with you on your holiday to Samoa instead of carrying a lot of cash. If you don’t have a credit card, consider a debit credit card that allows you to access your savings account in the local currency from ATMs and wherever credit cards are accepted.
