US currency, major credit cards and travelers checks are widely accepted on Aruba. It is a good idea to contact your credit card provider prior to departure and advise them of your travel plans. Without doing so, overseas charges may be questioned or denied.
Some merchants may not accept US $ 50 and $ 100 due to worldwide counterfeiting. Personal checks are not accepted.
Banks are generally open from 8 am – 4 pm Monday through Friday, though some branches remain open later on Friday and on Saturday morning.
ATM cards with Cirrus, MasterCard, Maestro or Visa logo can withdraw cash at banks and more than 50 island locations.
