Currency in Europe

The official currency in Europe is the Euro.  However, there are some countries which have their own currency. Depending on your place of a visit, you should get your currency exchanged. Ideally, it is better to carry Euros with you and you can get the same exchanged at the country’s airports or banks into the local currency.

If you do use Euro, you will be tendered change in the local currency. Make sure you have an idea about the exchange rates before a transaction. You can use your debit or credit card as well, as most places are comfortable with plastic money.  There will additional transaction fees levied, depending on your bank. It is always best to carry smaller denominations if you do not feel comfortable using your card.

Check the rates with SOTC before you head for your Europe trip so that you do not have currency woes while on your Europe holiday.
