1. Avoid currency exchange kiosks at airports

While currency exchange kiosks at airports often appear to offer great value, their rates are typically inflated, and in addition, they charge hefty fees. This means that rather than being a smart buy, you could be losing out on more money than you bargained for.

Which other countries use the South African rand?


Prior to its independence in 1990, the South African rand served as Namibia’s official currency. The integration of both countries has remained strong as the Namibian Dollar still holds a 1:1 rate with the South African rand, making it legal tender throughout Namibia. In 1993, after gaining freedom from SA control, this Southern African country introduced their own national currency, the Namibia Dollar, allowing them to strengthen its financial autonomy further.


In 1966, the loti was introduced as a means of decreasing Lesotho’s dependence on the South African rand. Nonetheless, both currencies remain in use today. It wasn’t until 1980 that it became legal tender, though; since then, its influence has continually been acknowledged and accepted by citizens throughout Lesotho.

Eswatini (Swaziland)

With the lilangeni as Eswatini’s official currency and pinned to South Africa’s rand at a 1:1 fixed rate, you can also use South African rand notes anywhere they’re accepted – excluding coins.
