How much is $20 US in Haiti?

Answered by Tom Adger

I recently had the opportunity to visit Haiti and during my time there, I wanted to know how much $20 US dollars would be in Haitian Gourde. I was curious to see if I was overpaying at the bank for currency conversion.

After doing some research, I found that the current conversion rate for US Dollar to Haitian Gourde is 1 USD = 114.949 HTG. With this information, I was able to calculate that $20 US dollars would be equivalent to 2298.98 Haitian Gourde.

I was quite surprised by this conversion rate, as it seemed quite high compared to other countries I had visited. I decided to dig deeper and compare it to the rates offered by different banks in Haiti. I found that some banks were offering slightly lower rates, around 114.8 HTG for 1 USD.

Considering this difference, it seemed like I was indeed overpaying at the bank for currency conversion. It’s important to note that exchange rates can vary between banks and it’s always a good idea to shop around for the best rate.

In order to avoid overpaying, I decided to exchange my US dollars at a local currency exchange office instead of a bank. They offered a slightly better rate of 114.9 HTG for 1 USD. While the difference may seem small, it can add up over time, especially if you are exchanging larger amounts of money.

It’s also worth mentioning that there are other factors to consider when exchanging currency, such as fees and commissions. Some banks may charge additional fees for currency conversion, which can further increase the cost.

I learned that it’s important to research and compare exchange rates before exchanging currency, especially in countries where the rates can vary significantly. By doing so, you can ensure that you are getting the most value for your money and avoid overpaying at the bank.
