Antigua Commercial Bank
On Barbuda you can complete most local transactions at the Antigua Commercial Bank near Codrington Airport. There is a cashpoint machine (ATM) outside the bank but it currently has a $500ec daily limit on foreign cards and can be often out of service so we advise that visitors bring cash for their stay. Hardly anyone in Barbuda has a card or credit machine so most payments in guesthouses, bars, shops or taxi's will expect cash. Both EC dollars and US dollars are acceptable here, at a rate of about EC$2.70 to US$1.00 - which never changes. Most people carry change in both currencies or will give you ec dollars in change. The bank opens Monday - Thursdays from 8 am to 3 pm, and on Fridays from 8 am to 4 pm. It closes for lunch from 12 to 1 pm daily, and on public holidays. Contact the bank on (268) 481-4215.
