Multibanco, Praia da Luz
There are cash machines at each bank in Luz as well as inside Baptista and Spar supermarkets. The maximum withdrawal is usually 200 Euro per transaction, up to the daily limit of your card in the UK

If changing travellers’ cheques, it is cheaper to change large denominations, or change large amounts of Sterling, all in one transaction, as the banks tend to charge a set fee for each transaction, no matter how large or small.

Many restaurants take cards but it is worth checking the situation beforehand.

Tipping – as a rule leave a cash tip of between 7% & 10% of the total bill, or 10% of the bill without the cost of any wine
