ATM

You will find most ATMs located within the major cities of Europe, while in smaller towns and countryside ATM locations will be less common. To withdraw money while travelling through Europe, don't forget to tell your bank your travel dates before you go and check what international withdrawal fees you may be charged.

Cash

It's always essential to carry some cash with you while travelling. Euros, British Pounds, Danish Kroner, Norwegian Kroner, Swedish Kroner, Czech Koruna, Croatian Kuna, Hungarian Forint, Icelandic Krona, Polish Zloty, Turkish Lira and Swiss Francs are some of the European currencies available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly.

Travel Card

If you'd like the security that a credit card offers while travelling without the risk of racking up debt, consider purchasing a pre-paid travel money card. A Cash Passport allows you to load your money in the form of British Pounds and Euros onto the card. Your money can then be accessed at various ATMS and used wherever MasterCard is accepted. The card has both a security pin and signature required for safe spending.
