The official currency in Iran is Rial, also known as IRR, but people typically use “tomans” to express the price of goods. Rial is just a tenth of the Toman price. There is no possibility to use international debit and credit cards in Iran. Therefore; it is highly advised to bring enough cash with you. Euros and American Dollars are the most common foreign currencies easily changed to Rial. As a tourist, you will need to bring dollars or Euros for any expenditure while you’re backpacking Iran. Then you can exchange them to Rial at the airports in major cities to receive cash. The amount of money you need to bring depends on your spending habits and the tour you have planned.
