Should I use cash or card in Europe?

When traveling in Europe, it's a good idea to carry both card and cash. While many shops and restaurants will accept credit cards, various small, local merchants may only accept cash - particularly in markets, smaller resorts, and off-the-beaten-track restaurants and shops.

Where can I use Euros?

The Euro is the main currency in 19 EU countries: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain. Andorra, Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City use EUR as their national currency, too. 

You can also use the Euro in overseas territories which have adopted the Euro including the Azores, the Canaries, Ceuta and Melilla, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Madeira, Martinique, Mayotte, Réunion, Saint Barthélemy, and Saint Pierre and Miquelon.

What's the best Euro rate?

The best Euro rate is typically found by buying online or using a click & collect service. These methods typically give you the best rates.

'Best' can also include service and confidence in the currency company - not just a good rate. Therefore we recommend you chose a provide like ICE who have operated for nearly 50 years and server 5 million+ people every year.

Is it a good time to buy Euros?

Finding a good time to buy Euros can be tricky. Unless you're buying large volumes of Euros, the general movement of the Euro exchange rate month-to-month is small - therefore the best time to buy Euros is when you need them.

That said, it's always good to take advantage of a good rate when Euro to Sterling exchange rates are high - so we recommend buying-ahead, rather than leaving it to the last minute before you go on holiday.


What's the highest pound to Euro rate ever?

The highest pound to Euro rate ever was €1.752 on 3rd May 2000 and the lowest Euro rate ever was  €1.02 on 30th December 2008.
