One of the most often asked questions by people visiting The Sleeping Camel Hotel is whether
they can pay here with a Visa or MasterCard and if it is possible to access money from ATM’s in Mali.
The first question is easy to answer;
as of now we no longer accept credit cards for payments at The Sleeping Camel Hotel. We do however accept payment in CFA, $US and in Euro’s.
The second question regarding credit cards is a little more complex.
Without a doubt, when it comes to using a credit card then going with visa is far and away the more sensible and reliable option. Visa cards work in most ATM’s in Mali. Whilst there are occasional problems with inter-bank communication errors, on the whole, I can recommend carrying a visa card as a reliable form of handling your cash supply in Mali. Prior to the problems in the north there were even banks in Timbuktu where you could access your account with your visa card. One thing worth considering is that occasionally the ATM machine takes several attempts for them to give you money. This is usually due to an issue with the connection to your own bank, but this problem is becoming rarer.
MasterCard however is a very different situation. There are only two banks that have relationships with MasterCard in Mali, Bank Atlantique and BIM. And even with these two, service is sporadic and not guaranteed at all branches. And once you leave Bamako the chances become even thinner that you will be able to access money.
When you access the ATM’s in Mali, you will always be given West African CFA. The CFA is pegged to the Euro at just below 656 CFA for 1 Euro. Other currencies values will be reflected in the current rate exchange relevant to the Euro.
