Currency and Currency Exchange

The euro, which is divided into 100 euro cents, is the official currency used in France. Notes are issued in the following denominations: 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 euros. Coins are issued in 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 euro cents, and 1 and 2 euro denominations.  

Banks offer the best exchange rates on both cash and traveller’s cheques, and the vast majority provide exchange services. Bureaux de change can be found at the airport, at exchange desks in busy tourist areas and at some of the larger hotels. ATMs are ubiquitous and generally accept foreign bank cards although those with endorsement by Visa, Access, AMEX, Diner’s Club and other major credit firms are the most readily accepted.

ATMs are available in many parts of Cannes - ensure you inform your bank before travelling abroad, and be aware you may be charged for cash withdrawals. It is advisable to exchange some cash before arriving in Cannes.
