Monaco is not a member of the EU. German statutory insurance therefore does not apply, or at least not automatically. Travelers are recommended to inquire with their German health insurance company before starting their trip and, if necessary, to take out health insurance for travel abroad with repatriation insurance. Check ebizdir for more information.

Other risks

The standard vaccinations for children and adults recommended by the Robert Koch Institute (including against tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), mumps, measles, rubella, pneumococci and influenza) should be refreshed before the trip if necessary.

Attention: Travelers who want to pay with their bank customer card abroad and withdraw money should find out from their bank about the possibility of using their card before starting their journey.

Travelers cheques

Traveller’s checks are no longer available in Germany and Switzerland and are hardly available in Austria. Travelers checks can be cashed in Monaco in a few banks and bureaux de change. They should be issued in euros, as the conversion fees for other currencies are even higher.

Banks are generally open Mon-Fri 09:00-12:00 and 14:00-16:00. Banks are closed on the afternoon before public holidays. Credit Foncier de Monaco near the Casino is open every day from 12pm to 11pm, including weekends and public holidays.
