Portugal (and therefore Madeira and Porto Santo) adopted the Single European Currency in 2002. Everyday transactions are done in Euros (although prices are also usually shown in Escudos, the previous national currency, as well). There are cash machines, accepting international credit and debit cards, on both Madeira and Porto Santo.


Tipping is optional   - although waiters typically expect to receive 5%. There is no need to tip taxi drivers, although if you are happy with the service there is no reason why you shouldn’t give them a little extra.



The emergency telephone number is 112.
