Playa del Ingles is located on the island of Gran Canaria in Spain, so the local currency is the Euro. As this is a large resort, you’ll find numerous ATM machines and foreign exchange facilities available to use. To save on holiday time though, we do suggest that you buy your travel money before you leave the UK. You can buy your Euros online via or from any Thomas Cook branch, which is cheaper than buying it at the airport. 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?
