Euro Currency Guide

The Euro is the standard unit of currency used in the European economic and monetary union colloquially referred to as the Eurozone. It is the second most traded currency in the world after the US Dollar; and is used by more than 330 million people on a daily basis. With over €800bn in circulation, the Euro has the highest combined value of banknotes and coins in the world, the second largest currency reserves in the world, and supports over 10 additional smaller currencies that are pegged to it by means of a fixed exchange rate.

In July 2013 Croatia became the 28th member of the European Union but they have not joined the Euro. If you are planning on visiting Croatia you will need to buy Croatian Kunas.

Euros are issued and managed by the European Central Bank based in Frankfurt, and a collection of Eurozone central banks known as the Eurosystem. Although most EU member states are obliged to adopt the Euro as their national currency, there are some notable exceptions. These include the United Kingdom and Denmark who negotiated exemptions and Sweden who opposed the Euro and deliberately failed to meet the monetary requirements needed to adopt it.

…exchange rates can be very competitive…

Euros are stocked by every bureau de change and currency house in the UK. This means competition is strong and exchange rates can be very competitive, so it is wise to compare rates online before you buy. Because competition is so high the profit margins can be very slim and this means that some supliers are only available over certain limits, £700 for example. Other currencies are not always held in stock so you would have to order them in. Our statistics show that the average order value for Euros is around £1016 (€1,098 as of 18th November 2013 and based on the data from 1st of August to 31st of October, 2013), but the most common amount taken on holiday by Brits is nearer £500 (€586).

The FCO no longer have a dedicated traveller information page (Know Before You Go External link opens in a new window) for tourists visiting Europe so you will need to check the specific page for the country you are going to visit.

Currency Supplier

We found 18 currency suppliers in the UK offering Euros.

EUR Rate

This is the exchange rate that each supplier is currently offering if you order online now.

£750 Buys

This is the amount of currency you will receive if you spend £750, and includes any applicable delivery costs.

To compare exchange rates without including delivery costs, untick the 'Include Delivery Costs?' checkbox at the top of the page.

Collection

Indicates whether or not you can collect your currency in person from the supplier.

A special case applies to the Post Office. You can order your currency online from the Post Office at their advertised rate and have it delivered to your local branch for collection, but if you walk in "off the street" to your local branch you will usually get a lower rate than if you ordered online.

Delivery Cost

The delivery costs associated with ordering from each supplier.

These costs have been automatically accounted for under the '£750 Buys' column, with the amount of currency you would receive being adjusted accordingly.

To compare exchange rates without including delivery costs, untick the 'Include Delivery Costs?' checkbox at the top of the page.
