Questions and Answers
How to travel with a large amount of cash?
It is strongly discouraged to carry cash in your luggage which will be placed in the hold during the whole trip. Some airports have encountered problems with this approach. The best way to carry money with you is in a wallet, preferably in an inside pocket of your jacket or in a travel belt worn close to your body. You can also use a purse or briefcase, but make sure you always keep it close to you.
What is required for a purchase or sale of currencies?
Law in France requires all professionals to ask their clients to present a valid ID for all currency exchange transactions.
What is the maximum amount of cash you can carry to cross the euro zone border?
There is no limit in itself. However, you have to declare all cash in excess of € 10,000 as soon as you enter or leave from any territory of the Euro zone.
How to resell your unused currency?
When you return from your trip it is entirely possible to keep your currency until your next trip. Reselling your currency directly at the airport or railway station may cause you a commission, an overload, or the application of a disadvantageous exchange rate.
