If you’re looking to order euros for your trip to Puglia, then we would always advise ordering your travel money online before you jet away. Avoid the last minute panic buying at the airport and instead secure far better rates of exchange by reserving your travel money online in advance. As well as ensuring you get far better rates, it’s also much more convenient. We recommend organising your travel money through our recommended partners TravelFX. After all, as well as offering excellent exchange rates, TravelFX will also deliver your currency direct to your door. With a next day delivery service, it’s even ideal for a last minute getaway.
Whilst most businesses in Puglia will accept card payments, it’s always sensible to carry a small amount of cash in Italy. After all, it’s often needed for payment in smaller restaurants, bars and cafes. Having cash is often also useful when paying for some public transport options. In addition, you may need some for purchases at local markets. And taxi drivers will usually appreciate payment in cash rather than by card.
That said, as well as carrying some cash, we also recommend you carry currency on a pre-paid currency card. We would suggest that you consider carrying a WISE card. Super easy to use, a WISE card allows you to top up in your local currency and then exchange that money and spend it in euros.
Finally, along with carrying cash and a pre-paid currency card, we also recommend having a standard credit or debit card with you on your travels. Having a variety of payment methods will always give you a second or third option should one of them fail.
