France is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Because of these charms and beauties, Paris, the capital of France, is one of the most visited cities in the world. In Paris, there are attractions for all tastes; It is available for people of fashion, culture, people interested in historical works, etc. Shopping in Paris is also beautiful. In addition to Paris, France has other beautiful cities such as Nice, Lyon, Marseille, etc. If you plan to travel to Paris, you must have French money, but what do you know about it?
The currency of France is the Euro. Of course, the Euro is not the only currency of France but also includes several other European countries. Based on the agreement concluded in 1999 among several European countries, these countries chose the Euro as their single currency. Based on this, the Eurozone member countries (which does not include all European countries) adopt and implement the same financial policies.
But it is good to know in what form the same French money, i.e., Euro, is offered. First, each Euro is equal to 100 cents.
In addition, Euro coins are minted and distributed as 1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents, 1 euro, and 2 euro coins. It should be noted that one side of Euro coins is common, but the other side is different in each country. However, you can still spend, for example, the 1 euro coin of France in Italy.
5 euro, 10 euro, 20 euro, 50 euro, 100 euro, 200 euro, and 500 euro banknotes are also euro banknotes used in the region’s countries. So for a trip to Paris, these bills and coins will be French money for you.
It is recommended not to carry all your money in large bills because even if 500 euros is lost, you have lost nearly 7.5 million.
Should we take dollars to France or euros?
To travel to countries such as Georgia, Turkey, Russia, etc., we recommend that you buy dollars and convert the dollars to the currency of the destination country at the destination. But it is different when traveling to Europe. First, you can quickly get Euros in most countries. If you have money left over after you return, you can sell it.
In addition, you have to pay high costs to convert dollars to euros in Europe, including the percentage of conversion of dollars to euros and exchange fees. Therefore, it is better to buy Euros in Iran to have French money.
