Retailers in Holland are allowed to round up or round down the total payment up to 0 or 5 Eurocent, if the payment is cash. Every other method of payment should be the exact amount.

It is mandatory for the retailer to inform the customer about this practice by means of window stickers or announcements at the cash register.

Examples:
A total amount of € 15,47 will be rounded down to € 15,45. An amount of € 5,89 will be rounded up to a total of € 5,90.
An ATM (Dutch: 'Geldautomaat' or 'Pinautomaat') can be found just about everywhere; railroad stations, banks, shopping malls, city centers and in some supermarkets or shops.

Most ATM's accept major credit cards for money withdrawels.
WHERE CAN I FIND AN ATM ?
Banking hours are from 9AM - 5PM on weekdays. Major bank offices are open on Saturdays.

GWK Travelex offices are open 7 days per week and are located only at major train/bus stations.
WHAT DOES THE EURO LOOK LIKE ?
The Euro comes in both coins and banknotes. There are 8 coins and 7 banknotes.
The coins have a "
common side" (Front), which shows the value and a customized "national side" (Back), the design depending on the country issuing the currency.
In contrast to the coins the banknotes have similar front and back sides.

WHICH COUNTRIES USE THE EURO ?
Although the Euro is a legitimate method of payment and should be generally accepted, retailers like supermarkets and especially gas stations are reluctant to accept the 200 and 500 Euro banknotes.

Banks, jewelry shops and such will accept any denomination.

It is much appreciated by any retailer to pay the exact amount, or at least no more than 100% of the actual price.

ROUNDING UP, ROUNDING DOWN
Paying cash in shops and restaurants is, despite the popularity of credit cards, still a common occurance.

We advise you to always have some cash on you, in case a credit card or any other method of electronic payment is not possible.

However, we strongly recommend not to have Euro banknotes larger than € 50 in your wallet as larger denominations will generally not be accepted.
