Money and Credit Cards

Traveling in Europe has been simplified a great deal by the introduction of the Euro. 
 
It is now used in most countries in the EU and the simplest way to draw cash is much as you would do at home, through an ATM. ATM's are open 24 hours a day but limited to the centres of bigger towns and cities, not in some of the smaller communities we cruise through.
 
You need to make sure that you have a CHIP and PIN card that carries the Cirrus, Mastercard or Visa logos and that you have an up to date and recently used pin number.
 
It is probably as well to call your bank and double check that your card will work in Europe. Most have quite a low daily withdrawal limit. About 300 Euros / 300 US Dollars / 250 UK pounds
 
Credit cards are widely accepted, but not in the smallest establishments. All use chip and pin.
