What is the currency in Madeira?

As a territory of Portugal, Madeira is part of the European Union. With this in mind, you might guess that the official Madeira currency is the Euro (€), and there are many ways to buy either before you leave for your holiday, or even while you’re out there.

The Euro is the most common currency used by European countries, so it’s ideal if you’re travelling across different countries and Europe.

Where can I buy Madeira currency? 

If you do forget to take local currency along with you, don’t panic; you can exchange money at banks and hotels throughout the island. You can also withdraw money from ATMs using your debit or credit card. But remember, you’ll always get the best value for money when you plan ahead.
