Italy Currency Guide

Currency

Italy uses the Euro.

ATM

ATMs in Italy are called bancomats. They’remostly located outside banks or at airports and train stations. If you’re planning on withdrawing money or using your credit card while in Italy, don’t forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and to see what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.

Cash

Before you leave home, it’s important to convert some of your Australian Dollars into Euros to have with you when you arrive in Italy. Euros are available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly. You can also change your Aussie Dollars once you land at banks, post offices and cambios (foreign exchange offices).

Travel Card

For large purchases, it’s a good idea to bring a credit card or travel card with you on your holiday instead of carrying a lot of cash. If you don’t have a credit card, consider a prepaid travel money card, such as a Multi-currency Cash Passport™, which lets you access your money in the form of Euros and other currencies from ATMs, and use wherever MasterCard® is accepted.
