How to find our best euro exchange rates

Follow these tips to help you get the best deal when converting pounds to euros.

Don't buy euros at the airport

Select your provider

Once you’ve found the best euro exchange rate, visit the provider’s website and review the details to make sure it suits your needs.

Order online or collect

Pros and cons

Pros

You can find a competitive exchange rate and guarantee this before your trip
It’s a good way to budget as you know how much you’ve got to spend
You can often keep leftover euros for your next trip, as they can be used in so many different countries

Cons

Cash isn’t usually the cheapest option as a travel debit or credit card can offer better rates
Physical cash can also get lost or stolen
Buy back rates might mean you lose more money if you have leftover euros

How far will your euros go?

The cost of living varies in different European countries, so if you take €500 on holiday then you’ll get more for your money in some countries compared to others. We looked at the European countries with the highest number of international tourist arrivals from 2019 to 2022 and compared the average cost of living to see how far your euros would go.

For example, in France you are likely to pay €60 for a three-course meal for two in a mid-range restaurant but in Croatia the cost of the same meal will probably be closer to €50. In terms of local beer, you can expect to pay around €2.50 in Spain but €4.20 in Austria. And if you like a coffee in the morning, you can expect to pay around €1.55 for a regular cappuccino in Italy, compared to €3.21 in Germany. Aside from food and drink, taxis also vary in cost as you’ll only pay €0.70 per 1km on a normal tariff in Portugal, but in Greece it’s €1.00 for the same fare.

Where can I spend my euros?

The 26 countries that currently use the euro are: Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Greece, Cyprus, Malta, Vatican, San Marino, Italy, Monaco, France, Andorra, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany.

What are the top alternatives to buying travel money?

Travel credit cards

Travel credit cards

Travel credit cards - i.e. the ones with no foreign transaction fees - offer two key advantages over travel money:

  • Great exchange rates - when you spend on a travel credit card you get the Mastercard or Visa exchange rate, which is about the best you can find as a regular consumer

  • Purchase protection – for purchases costing between £100 and £30,000 you're covered by Section 75 of the consumer credit act, meaning if something goes wrong you can make a claim with your card provider should the vendor fail to pay up

However, not everywhere accepts travel credit cards and using them at a cash machine abroad can come with hefty fees. It can also be easier to overspend on a credit card, leaving you with debts on which interest is charged.

Travel money cards

Travel money cards

Currency cards and travel bank accounts let you spend overseas without being charged a foreign transaction fee. Their key strengths are:

  • Great exchange rates - you card provider will pass on the Mastercard or Visa rate to you without adding extra charges

  • No charges for ATM use overseas - if you need extra cash on holiday, you can withdraw it without being charged by your provider. Watch out for local ATM fees though, as these might still apply 

The downsides include that there can be limits on how much you can withdraw abroad using a travel money card, and that they're not accepted quite as widely as cash. Some travel current accounts also come with fees.

Prepaid travel cards

Prepaid travel cards

Prepaid travel cards can be loaded with currency and used abroad without paying foreign exchange fees. You can load a prepaid card with a specific foreign currency or a variety of different currencies, depending on your travel plans. The key advantages are:

  • Low or no fees to use abroad – prepaid travel card providers charge far less than traditional banks for overseas usage

  • Safer than carrying cash - you can cancel or freeze the card if it's lost or stolen, protecting your balance

However, you’ll need to watch out for general usage fees, which often apply when you load the card with cash and may also be charged monthly.
