You will find an ATM on almost every street corner. Most machines accept MasterCard, Visa or Maestro. Check the logo’s on the machine to see if it matches your pass. Your bank might charge you a service fee with every withdrawal of cash so it may be a good idea to take out enough money for the time you’ll be here. Make sure no one behind you sees you typing in the pin code. Cover everything with your hand or wallet and do not get distracted either. Credit cards are accepted in most big stores and restaurants but not in supermarkets.
Banks like ING, Fortis and ABN Amro will help you exchange money. They are usually open on weekdays from 9am-5pm.
GWK Travelex is located at Central Station in the blue pre fab building in case you need cash quickly. Open 7 days a week, Mon-Fri 8am-10pm, Sat-Sun 9am-10pm.
Western Union combined with GWK Travelex is at the Groothandelsgebouw next to the Station. They transfer money around the world within 15 min for a fee which varies from country to country.
