Going to the BVI in July. If you’ve been recently, what advice can you give about cash verses credit cards. I heard earlier that many businesses were not able to take cards. Has that changed substantially? Thanks...

Pirates took mine...100 for 6 pain killers...last time for stop...
Soggy Took mine for 3 days in a row... 250.00 for a lot of PKs.
Moorings Takes CC for fuel
Leverick Grocery took CC
Leverick Bar did too...
Riteway took AMEX CC

All last week, and all I remember due to too many PKs

Just there two weeks ago. The only place we found that didn't take a CC was C&I at West End. There always has to be a reason for me to be sent back to my boat! Other than that we had no problems with credit cards anywhere.


Life's short - sail more!

No problem with credit cards on VG - cash is always appreciated so people don't need to go to the bank.

The only place I recall not taking credit cards was on JVD, including Foxy's gift shop.

As a small business owner, I can totally appreciate preferring cash over plastic (that 3% adds up!). I'm sure that's doubly so if you are living on an island with ridiculous banking (non) service! snore

If only we could feel safe enough to travel with wads of bills on our boats with flimsy locks and no way to defend ourselves. My machete and speargun skills don't get enough practice. duel

You don’t have to worry about bringing loads cash as long as you anchor in a designated “Crime Free Zone”
