Eurozone Travel Practical Tips

When arriving at any new destination for first time visitors it cant hurt to stop by the Tourist Point to get any free maps, discounts, and cost free events. Most decent hotels have free WiFi so try using this to avoid any suprise Roaming fees on your phone when you get back home. ATM and credit card use varies greatly between countries so purchasing a Pre-paid Travel Card before leaving for your travels can save time and hassle.

If you would like to travel by train and can book a fair way in advance you can save money by getting a pass for Europes extensive train system that goes pretty much everywhere. You can check prices at sites like RailEurope. To safe a lot of travel time and money you can book a sleeper cabin on an overnight train. While travelling across Europe by bus used to be uncomfortable there are now low cost luxury buses available. And now to save even more time at your locations instead of travelling to them, costs for flights have greatly reduced in recent years making it a very affordable and very fast way to get around. Depends on your preference.

Sending Money to the Eurozone

When sending money to the Eurozone it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 3 simple steps :

  1. Open an account with a provider (id docs may be required)
  2. You specify the local or Euro amount you want to transfer
  3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
  4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted EUR amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in the Eurozone.

You can save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more Euro deposited into the recipient bank account in the Eurozone and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
