I’m travelling to Tenerife next month, and wondered if anyone has had any issues using their Monzo card there? Or if they’ve had any positive experiences using their Monzo card out there? I will be taking cash with me as well, and there is a chance I may have to withdraw Euros whilst I’m out there as well.
Not sure if I’ve missed anywhere on here about people using their Monzo cards in Tenerife.
We own an apartment in Tenerife and are there regularly.
We pay everything (and I mean everything) using our Monzo cards. All taxis will accept Monzo, and almost every bar, supermarket and shop happily accept card payments.
On the rare occasions, we need some of that old-fashioned cash stuff, we have discovered that Banca Marche do not charge for withdrawals at all – just make sure that you withdraw in euros and do not let them apply an exchange rate.
I have moved to using my Monzo card on Apple Pay (I understand Google Pay does much the same). This has the result that I don’t even have to carry the physical card with me all the time. I do have to carry my phone obviously had to keep it secure to avoid the inevitable pickpockets.
