Home | the barbudaful community | Business on Barbuda | Antigua Commercial Bank

Hardly anyone in Barbuda has a card machine so most payments in guesthouses, bars, shops or taxi’s will expect cash.

The bank is currently only open on Wednesdays 9am to 2pm and Thursdays 8am to 1pm and is situated near the airport.

There is a cashpoint machine (ATM) outside the bank and when it works, it has a $500ec daily limit on foreign cards so we advise visitors to bring enough cash for their stay.

They have a useful app for local customers that assists with transfers online.

Both EC dollars and US dollars are welcome here, at a rate of about EC$2.70 to US$1.00 which never changes. Most Barbudan businesses keep change in both currencies or will give you ec dollars in change for US$.
