Time and Communication
Togo operates on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+0) all year round, with no observance of daylight saving time. The major telecommunication providers include Togo Cellulaire and Moov Togo, providing comprehensive coverage in urban areas and good coverage in many rural areas.
Money and shopping
The local currency in Togo is the West African CFA franc, with an exchange rate of approximately 550 francs to 1 US dollar (as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021). While the US dollar may be accepted in some places, it is advised to have local currency. Bank cards are accepted in major hotels and restaurants in Lomé, but cash is preferred elsewhere. Visa cards are more widely accepted than others. Currency exchange offices typically operate during standard business hours.
In Togo, shared taxis and minibuses, known as “bush taxis”, are common means of transport. Motorbike taxis, or “zemidjans”, are also popular, particularly in Lomé. Car rentals are available, but road conditions can be challenging outside of urban areas.
