Money for Noumea


Diddles62

Recommended Posts

ANy Ideas how to much one should consider to convert to Pacific Francs. DH & I are doing a Paid tour in the morning then were thinking of going back to ship for lunch then take a taxi back into town etc for a wander around. So dont really want to get stuck with exess pacific francs.

hi Diana,

The taxis will only take francs, however you do not need a taxi to go into town. The ship docks practically in the main street, so you just walk. Unless you have particularly plans, I wouldn't change any money at all. The small market in the cruise terminal takes Aud.

Evon.

HI< Diddles, eagleboys mum here i agree with your last reply you wont need much money there as everything is expensive>Also ther e is a supermarket across the road from where the ships docks if you need a drink etc. I believe they take aust dollars too. Also you have 2 full sea days to think about it before we get into Noumea anyway.:)

Hi,

 

We changed $100 into Pacific francs, complete waste of time as everywhere takes AUD. My husband and 2 sons both have 500 franc notes (about $10AUd) in their wallets as souvenirs now. Also once at the terminal there are plenty of tours (about 1/3 the ships price) to book and all take AUD, as do the shops.
