Money:

The Central African CFA franc (XAF) is the official currency of Chad (along with five other central African countries). It is divided into 100 smaller units called centimes.

Chad is a cash economy and credit cards are seldom accepted. Foreign currency can be exchanged at a few banks and hotels in the capital city, but the process is expensive, time consuming and unreliable. There are also very few reliable ATMs in Chad.
