What is the currency in Cape Verde?
The Cape Verde Escudo (CVE, sometimes shown as $) is the currency. It is linked to the Euro at the rate of 110CVE = 1€. The Euro is accepted at some shops and services, but often it is calculated at the rate of 100CVE to 1€, which means you lose 10%. The CVE is not normally available outside of the country, but the four international airport all have cash machines/automats, so you can obtain currency on arrival. It is useful to take some Euros with you in case you need to spend some money immediately on arrival and can’t get to the cash machine.

We accept Cape Verdean escudos (CVE), euros (€), dollars ($) and pounds sterling (£). We can also arrange bank transfer as a form of payment if you contact us in advance.
