What's the best way to get Polynesian Francs? We've heard the ATMs are unreliable. What works best, debit cards, ATM cards, or should we get Traveler's Checks?
All the ATMs we used in French Polynesia were reliable. One did not produce a receipt when I asked for one.
Another quick point here- to catch the ferry to Moorea, you need to pay in
Cash, unless you have more than two people taking the ferry. There is a minimum for using a credit card for ferry tickets. So I would recommend getting your cash before you leave the airport.
We changed cash at the airport. We found that to be the best spot.
