Praktische info Memphis, Verenigde Staten

Vervoer in de stad

Public transport is not very reliable in Memphis and the most efficient way to cover the sprawling city is by renting a car, although traffic congestion can make driving a slow business, even more so during rush hours. The city is simple to navigate and parking is generally easy to find. To hire a car drivers must be 21 years old, and most agencies have higher rates for under-25s. Some require an International Driving Permit as well as a valid driver's license. Public transport is available, but consists of slow and infrequent buses, as well as the more useful Main Street Trolley that covers downtown in a circular route. Taxis are also available and must be booked by phone.

Tijdzone

GMT -6 (GMT -5 from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November).

Netspanning

120 volt, 60Hz. Over het algemeen maakt men gebruik van stekkers met twee platte pinnen, maar de drie-pinsstekkers zijn ook gangbaar. Voor Europese apparaten met dubbel voltage is een converter nodig.

Valuta

De officiële munteenheid is de Amerikaanse dollar (USD). Eén Dollar is 100 cent. Alleen bij de grote banken kunt u geld wisselen. Creditcards worden algemeen geaccepteerd en overal zijn geldautomaten. Banken zijn open van 9.00 tot 15.00 uur van maandag t/m vrijdag.

Communicatie

Het landnummer voor bellen naar de Verenigde Staten is +1. Mobiele netwerken dekken het grootste deel van het land en alle stedelijke gebieden, maar de kans is groot dat uw eigen telefoon het niet doet, tenzij deze van het tri-bandtype is. In de grote en kleine steden zijn internetcafés te vinden.
