Can I use credit or debit cards in Munnar?

Answers(1)

Answered by Niranjana(Travel Advisor), March 3, 2021

There are many ATMs available in Munnar from where you can certainly take out your money. But, it is advisable to use cash instead of cards; especially credit cards as you will not find it convenient everywhere in Munnar. Credits cards are not accepted everywhere and thus carry cash for a hassle-free trip.
