What is the local currency?
The local currency is the Malaysian Ringgit (MYR).
Should I change money before I go?
It’s not essential to change money before you arrive, there are money exchanges in the airport as well as in the main town centres operating on the days rate. There are also ATM’s available where you can access your home bank, and most places will take all major credit cards.
How much should I budget per day for extras?
Although many meals and activities are included in the price of your trip, you’ll need extra funds to cover non-included meals, drinks, snacks and any shopping you may want to do.
Budget from USD £30 to £40 per day, but this is guidance only as you know your spending patterns better than we do.
Is it customary to tip?
Tipping at local restaurants is not expected, but is appreciated; 10% is a good guideline.
Then for your guide and driver, it is customary, though not compulsory to tip them around £3-5 a day, this would normally be given at the end of the adventure and is completely up to you and whether you feel they have earnt it.
