The official currency used in Paphos and throughout the rest of Cyprus is the euro. This took the place of the Cypriot pound in January 2008. In order to get the best value for money, it would be best to exchange your money before you travel, either in your nearest Thomas Cook store or online via This is a cheaper option than doing it at the airport, as that can often work out to be a lot more expensive. You’ll still be able to withdraw or exchange money in resort too, as there are plenty of ATMs and foreign exchange bureaus dotted around. Or maybe you should consider taking a Thomas Cook Cash Passport with you.
