Currencies Pegged to the US Dollar

A currency pegged to the dollar means that there is a set or fixed rate of exchange between that currency and the USD. What this means for you, the traveler, is that you can be fairly certain that when you arrive in that country, your USDs can be exchanged for the same amount as when you departed. The exchange rate is more stable than those currencies that are allowed to float according to market demand and supply relationships. This fixed rate is great for planning for those travelers on a tight budget.
