Travellers Essentials


Currency and banking
The basic monetary unit is the Belgian Franc. In May 1998, Belgium and ten other members of the European Union (EU) officially adopted a new, single currency, the euro, for all transactions. The new currency was used as of January 1, 1999, for electronic transfers and for accounting purposes.

Euro coins and bills will be issued in 2002, at which time the Belgian currency will cease to be legal tender. In addition to adopting the euro, the EU member countries also established the European Central Bank (ECB).

Tipping
In Belgium, prices are quoted "all inclusive". No additional tipping necessary.

Bank Service
Hours : Monday through Friday 9 AM to 3 PM (some closing for an hour at lunch time)
