    Things to know about the euro


    The euro (ISO: EUR) is involved in slightly more than 30% of all foreign exchange deals, and as such, is the world’s second most traded currency, behind the US dollar.

    The euro is the currency of the eurozone (officially called the ‘euro area’), which consists of 19 of the 28 member states of the European Union, and is used by almost 350 million Europeans. It was introduced in January 1999.

    Of all the thousands of exchange rates that exist in the world, the euro-to-US dollar exchange rate is the most actively traded, or most ‘liquid’.

    Since its introduction, the euro’s lowest value against the dollar came in October 2000 when EUR/USD hit lows of 0.8231. The currency was strongest in July 2008, shortly before the worst stage of the 2007-2009 financial crisis, when EUR/USD reached 1.6038.

    There are currently more than twenty nations and territories which peg their currencies to the euro, the largest of which is Denmark.

    Travelling to Cyprus

    In ancient mythology, Cyprus is the legendary birthplace of the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. In contrast, this third largest island in the mediterranean, has in modern times been dominated by antagonism between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots. Since 1974, when Turkey invaded the north of the island, Cyprus has been divided into Greek Cypriot occupation (southern two-thirds) and Turkish Cypriot occupation (northern third). UN troops patrol the “Green Line” dividing that divides the country. Any entry into the territory of the Republic of Cyprus via any other port or airport in the Turkish-occupied areas of Cyprus is illegal, and travellers doing so may face legal consequences. Therefore you are urged to travel via the recognised ports of entry (Larnaca and Paphos International Airports / seaports of Lemesos (Limassol), Larnaca (Larnaca), Paphos (Paphos) and Latsi.

    Politics aside, as a travel destination, Cyprus has a multitude of wondrous sights and sounds to experience. From ancient ruins, beautiful beaches, nature watching for green turtles, scuba diving, and picturesque ports housing food and cafe culture.

    Cyprus is an EU member state, and since 2008 the Euro has been the official currency. All banks plus many hotels in Cyprus offer currency exchange services. Major credit cards are widely accepted but always carry some cash for smaller restaurants, cafes, and shops.

    There are no restrictions on the import and export of cash or gold if travelling from within the EU. However, transporting of 10,000Euro or more (or the equivalent in another currency) must be declared at customs.
