Kuwait's currency is the Kuwaiti Dinar (KWD). Major credit cards are widely accepted. Currency is best taken in US Dollars or British Pounds, with the Indian Rupee (INR) also easy to exchange. There are banks with foreign exchange facilities in the large centres and ATMs are plentiful. Many banks are open from 8am to 3pm from Sunday to Thursday, but some banks have more varied hours. ATMs are usually open 24 hours.
