The currency used in Porto is the Euro (EUR).
Notes are €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200 and €500, while coins are 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, €1 and €2. Most major credit cards are accepted across the city, however cash is preferred in many cafés and restaurants.
We recommend buying Porto travel money before you leave the UK. You can exchange your Sterling at a local post office or bank. Alternatively, you can order your currency from Thomas Cook Travel Money, or you can load your Euro onto our travel money card, which offers an efficient way to carry money on holiday. With access to wholesale rates, we offer highly competitive rates, making your holiday spends stretch that little bit further.
