The official currency in the South of France is the Euro.
While there are many ATMs throughout the French Riviera, it is worth ordering your Euros ahead of your travels to save on withdrawal fees. Ordering your currency from Thomas Cook Travel Money means you will have access to competitive rates. And while debit and credit cards are also widely accepted, you will still find family run shops, cafes and restaurants in Provence that only accept cash. Make sure to contact your bank before using your card abroad so that you’re informed about potential charges.
