What our customers say

  • Very helpful and supportive service. Recommendable to all of those who have concerns about carrying cash - or keeping the budget - in Iran, especially if they travel for a long-term or they are eager to buy souvenirs. It is easy to keep the budget using this service, as you can simply withdraw your daily budget every day and see how much surplus you still have. the rate is fair and legitimate, so to say. you don't have to be bothered by the transaction fee.
  • Works perfectly! Used it everywhere, even in small traditional teahouses. And they dont charge any transactions :) mostly i just got to the ATM in the morning and that was my daily budget. Hard to find an ATM? No way! Haha. They are everywhere in Iran.
  • Alen Mujkanović
    Travelled with three friends and all of us got our own Mah Card since international cards aren't accepted and we felt uncomfortable carrying large amounts of cash around. It was absolutely uncomplicated, fast, safe and easy to get everything done. The card is accepted everywhere in Iran and many locals are amused to see even tourists using their own Shetab cards. Just make sure to withdraw the remaining balance on time (Thursday and Friday are weekend days and many places are closed)! Can only recommend!
