Togo - Money & Costs
Money & Costs in TogoCurrency: CFA Franc
Travellers to Togo will find accommodations among the least expensive in West Africa. From dollar-a-night campgrounds to first-class suites at around US$50, you certainly won't break the bank on your bedding options. Likewise, food is very affordable in all but the finest restaurants. A street vendor's meal might leave you stuffed to the gills for an outlay of only US$1.
Budget-crunching travellers should be able to get by on no more than US$10 a day, though doubling that would chase away many of the inherent worries of dive-hopping. Up the ante to US$50 per day, and you won't have a worry in the world.
Banks are your best bet for changing money, though the black market is bustling near Lomé's Ghanaian border.
