If an item is --- in Euros, how do I know what bills/coins in my hand to give? Basically, how do you read European currency?

For example, I'm worried I won't be able to give the right amount of Euros to a shopkeeper or a taxi driver since I'm not used to reading European currency.

  • It's easy.
    100 (euro) cent = 1 euro
    So if they ask for 1,45 euro, they want 1 euro and 45 cent.
    From then on it's just about looking at what the coins say, and do the math.

    oh, and unlike americans, Europe INCLUDE taxes in their prizes. S oyou pay what the prize tag says.

    • I think she's talking about actually counting out the money. I think the denominations are different as its not dollars and cents like here.

    • @musicbrain5 oh I see. well bottom line, its just counting, once the value is learned it should be easy.

  • there's a converter no?

    • I don't want to be taken advantage of..

    • anyway...

      1 U. S. dollar =
      0.915511977 Euros

  • can you read numbers? it says on each coin or bill... so just read the number. one € is about 1,01 $, so pretty much the same.

  • They have the actual numeral values on them and aren't hard to read at all. You can google "how to read euros" and be fine. I'm sure there's an entire Wikipedia article on it.

  • They're different colours and sizes. Also, what they're worth is printed right on them. Treat them the same as any other currency.

  • You need to carry a scale with you at all time.. you need to weigh the coins and bills to get the right amount. ^^

    If you're too lazy for that.. there are numbers on them -.-
