Bruges Currency Guide
The currency used in Bruges is the Euro.
ATMs are readily available in Bruges. Be sure to always carry cash as a backup in case the power goes down, the ATM is out of order, or you lose or break your plastic. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don’t forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and to check what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.
Before you leave home, don't forget to convert some of your Australian Dollars into Euros to have with you when you arrive in Bruges. Euros are readily available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly.
If you'd like the security that a credit card offers without the risk of racking up debt while travelling, consider purchasing a prepaid travel card. A Multi-currency Cash Passport™ allows you to load your money in the form of Euros and other currencies onto the card. Your money can then be accessed at various ATMS and used wherever MasterCard® is accepted. The Multi-currency Cash Passport card has both a security pin and signature required for safe spending.
