Cash from ATMs

Please can someone tell me how easy it is to get money from my UK bank by using the ATMs in Muscat? Is this practical or should we bring currency with us. Also, can we pay for most things using credit cards? Many thanks

No problem at all. Switch and Cirrus/Maestro will work. HSBC have plenty of ATMs. You will generally need some cash about you as not all places take cards (souks, handicraft shops etc). Your tourist visa at Seeb airport will cost you OMR 6 but you pay that at the Travelex currency exchange anyway so change money there and buy your visa at the same time. Have a good trip.
