Finland Money


Euro is the official currency of Finland. one euro is divided into 100 cents. There are seven euro notes – in denominations of 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5 euros, each a different colour and size – and eight different coin denominations, including 2 and 1 euros, then 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 cents. However Finland does not use the 1 and 2 cent coins; instead all sums are rounded to the nearest 5 cents.

Money can be easily changed. ATMs are common and can be operated with international credit and bedit cards. Credit cards are widely accepted in shops and hotels.


Tipping is not necessary in Finland and restaurant bills already include service charges. That said, taxi fares and other bills paid by cash are are occasionally rounded up to the next convenient number.
