How To Get Your Cash In Daet

Now how to get your cash in daet , when you are here . Travellers cheques are a safe way , or safer still is to pick up your spending money from one of the above methods.

Another way is to bring foriegn currency and change it , the black market money changers are to be found near the traffic lights on the Bagasbas road . There exchange is quite reasonable , although do ask for a better rate !

ATM’s In Daet

Getting local currency from a bank or ATM in daet can be done using your card with cirrus, visa, visaelectron, maestro, mastercard, to name a few .

There are lots of atm’s in the centro , use in the day time and there will be a guard standing around . Some machines will give 10,000 while other banks machines will give only 4,000 but you can just put your card back in and do it again , remember though each transaction is another fee to your bank account !

Just ask inside , not the people outside they probably wont know , also its probably best not to advertise you intend to take a few thousand peso out.

Remember street smarts ! but also be aware there is a lack of decorum and mannners at atm’s people do like to help, watch, look and distract you ! Daet locals are just to helpfull and friendly sometimes !

No Cash Over The Counter In Daet

PLEASE NOTE as of 2013 its not possible to get cash over the counter in Daet yet by using a credit card for this you will need to go to Naga City 2 hours away bus or van .

This is the best option if you want to withdraw a large amount on your credit card i think you can get a max of p300,000 just by going in handing over card and giving passport and photocopies . That should be enough to last you a couple of days lol.

Notify Your Bank

One important thing to remember though is to notify your bank or card issuer (yes long phone call) you intend to use your card here in daet or the philippines , or there fraud watch will block your card , this happens a lot .

The phone number will be on the back of the card , sometimes even though you notified them they still block it , then you must call from Daet which will cost p500 on a phone card and sim .

It is also a good idea to ask for a maximum limit to be applied on each card for the duration of your holiday just to be on the safe side !

It can be confusing sometimes here in Daet becuse the atm might be empty so people cross the road and use another one , which becomes empty , you wont know if its because its empty or your card has been blocked .

One last thing most small places in Daet dont accept cards , only good ol hard cash money .
