The official currency of Azerbaijan is Azerbaijani Manat (AZN), which is accepted for payment purposes. Currency exchange services are available at local bank branches and the majority accept US Dollars, Euros and Russian Roubles, while many also accept British Pounds and Turkish Lira. For current exchange rates, it is recommended to check with the Central Bank of Azerbaijan.
Major chip-and-pin credit cards are accepted at hotels, stores, cafes and restaurants, but it’s always a good idea to ask beforehand. The most common credit cards are VISA, VISA Electron and Mastercard, but you should not have a problem finding ATM cash machines that also accept Maestro and American Express.
