Can I use my debit card and credit card in South Africa?

It is possible to pay with a debit or credit card at most fuel stations, restaurants and supermarkets.

To withdraw cash you can go to an ATM. You can use your own card for this but please be aware of the bank charges both your own bank and the South African bank might charge you.

Visa and MasterCard are accepted are widely accepted.

As is the case is most countries, you have to be aware of skimming. We advise you to never withdraw cash at an ATM alone and to only do this during the day. It’s also wise to only go to ATM’s inside banks as these always have security guards present.
