Credit Cards are widely accepted and easy to use. However, money exchange charges vary, depending on the issuing bank. You should call your bank before departing. When using ATM machines, remember that fees and currency exchange rates are not known at the time of transaction. Don’t use them often for small amounts of money. Always have more than one credit card with you.
Cash is a means of payment accepted everywhere. Make sure you have it upon arrival to avoid unnecessary inconveniences. Exchange money before you go to become skilled in handling local currency.
Tipping: In most European countries tips are included in your bill (usually about 10%). Only extraordinary service calls for an extra tip. Taxi drivers get tipped 10-20%.
