Monaco Currency Guide
Monaco uses the Euro.
In Monaco, there are ATMs everywhere you look. It’s the place to spend, spend, spend! You will have to pay a fee to use the ATM, but if you need Euros, it’s a cheaper option than going to the bureau de exchange. 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 travel it is important to convert some of your Australian Dollars into Euros to have with you when you arrive. Euros are available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly. You’ll rarely find Monaco-printed Euros – they’re often snapped up by collectors. But if you do happen to get one, pocket it. Your money may make you money! You can also change your Aussie dollars into Euros at the many banks, strategically placed near the casinos.
For safe spending like a credit card but without the risk of accruing debt, a pre-paid travel money card is ideal for international travel. A Cash Passport uses your money in the local currency and can be used at various ATMs overseas and wherever MasterCard is accepted. Various major currencies can be loaded onto the card, including Euros, with competitive exchange rates and fees.
