Syria is considered relatively cheap, when you get your visa at the border, ask to exchange your money or you can ask your guide to exchange it. In Syria, we use the Syrian Pound (SYP). Bring € or USD (clear and new) because you cannot pay with a card, only Cash. And since our tours cover mostly everything, you’ll only need money for meals and shopping. A meal can cost you anywhere between 1-20$ depending on what and where you choose to eat. Same for shopping, souvenirs can cost anywhere between 2$ and up depending on what you want to buy, so on average, you’ll need around 100-150$ at least for 5-7 days tour, and more if you REALLY like shopping.
