The currency used in Spain is Spanish Peseta (EPT).
Visa, Eurocard, American Express, MasterCard, Diners Club and Access
are widely accepted.
Visas are not required for EU passport holders and for U.S. and
Canadian citizens staying up to 90 days.
Bank offices are open for business from 8.30am to 2:30pm Monday
through Saturday, except in the summer months when they are closed
on Saturday. Some branch offices are open in the afternoon.
Tipping is a great tradition in Spain. While practically all establishments
currently include a surcharge for service, it is still common to
leave something of a tip. Tipping has extended to hotel porters,
theatre ushers and taxi drivers, though in none of these cases is
it obligatory nor will anyone recriminate a client for not tipping.
