The currency in Albufeira is the Euro. As this is a popular tourist resort you’ll find a number of ATM machines and foreign exchange facilities in the area, but we suggest that you buy your travel money before you leave the UK. This can be done at the airport, but for cheaper rates, go online or to any Thomas Cook branch. Find your nearest store here. If you’re not sure how much money you want to take away with you, then why not check out the Thomas Cook Cash Passport?
