Value for Money

Great Value Holidays to The Gambia

Holidays in The Gambia are very competitively priced compared to other destinations . Sitting outside of the Eurozone The Gambia is also unaffected by any movements of sterling against the Euro. In fact, the Dalasi exchange rate has improved a great deal in the last 2 years and the most recent Post Office Holiday Money report (early 2014) in fact highlights The Gambia as one of the destinations showing the greatest improvement in value for money. You can currently find rates of up to D63 to the £ (as of January 2014).  Value for money is therefore excellent in resort areas when eating out or purchasing local handicrafts.

Ever wondered how much things cost in The Gambia? This handy comparison table should give you some useful pointers - updated every October.
