Useful Money Information

You are advised to take a safe deposit box in your hotel or apartment block and just carry the minimum amount of money with you. You can change your travellers cheques or cash into euros at the reception of your hotel, apartment block, change bureaux or local banks.

To change travellers cheques you will need to show your passport for identification purposes. It is advisable to check that the amount of money you are given corresponds with the exchange rate offered - this changes daily.
