Exchanging Money (Part 2)

Most financial services are multi-lingual. English being the preferred mode of international communication. You will be able to transact other methods of exchange with your Eurocard, and your American Express Travellers Cheques. Keep an eye out for the etiquettes/stickers displayed visibly on the doors to banks and other financial services. They may show acceptance of many other types of currency for exchange: Thomas Cook Travellers cheques, Eurocheques, and even personal cheques from other European Banks - that is if they have a reciprocal relationaship with your financial institution back home. An example would be the special service that exists for customers of the Royal Bank of Scotland in the United Kingdom: the BCI (Banco Comércio & Industria) at the Marina Shopping Centre in the Avenida Arriaga can accept financial transactions between your account at home and at the counter here of the Portuguese Bank.
