So in that sunny isle, rolling on the waves of the Mediterranean Sea, you will pay by the Euro.
A characteristic feature of the common European currency is the fact that all the bank notes (no matter in which country they are emitted) have the same pattern (typical European architectural motifs), and the coins have the common European obverse and the individual national reverse side.
Even though the Euro coins may have different patterns, their validity is equal everywhere. Therefore, both in Mallorca and in the entire Euro zone, you will easily pay with any Euro coin (i.e. in Spain you don’t need to have the Spanish version of the coins presenting Juan Carlos I, Miguel de Cervantes or the Santiago de Compostela cathedral).
The notes in the whole Euro zone have seven nominal values: EUR 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500, while the coins have the values of EUR 1 and 2, as well as 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents.
It is worth knowing that in Mallorca there is no problem with using payment cards (preferably Visa), but if you want to get some cash, you can withdraw it in a cash machine or exchange currency in numerous banks (note the short opening hours, e.g. only until 1:00 PM or 2:00 PM) or exchange bureaus close to our villa for rent in Mallorca.
