The Euro is the official currency in France. Currency can be exchanged at a bureaux de change, banks and some large hotels, though you will get a better exchange rate at ATMs. Major credit cards are widely accepted, as are travellers cheques, particularly in major tourist destinations.

Foreign currency is not accepted. Some first-class hotels are authorised to exchange foreign currency. Visitors should also look for the Crédit Mutuel' or 'Crédit Agricole', which have longer opening hours. Shops and hotels are prohibited from accepting foreign currency by law. Many UK banks offer differing exchange rates depending on the denominations of currency being bought or sold. Travellers should check with their banks for details and current rates.
