Spending Money

by AussieMadCow


I'm going to be in Barcelona for 4 nights. How much spending money should I budget for? This includes any transportation, sightseeing, eating and maybe souvenir shopping (not a lot of that). Can anyone please give me an idea? I want to order my traveller's cheques tonight or tomorrow. Oh, in case it makes a difference, I'm travelling alone.

Thank you.

Travellers checks are not usual here in B. (EU?)
perhaps credit / debit pre-paid cards wd work better (flexibility)
and some euros in cash of course for small expenses and just-in-case-reserve .
The amount ... just a try/guess to estimate
city transport is cheap (20 euro ?)see
unless you go by taxis (1 eu/km)
sightseeing may vary from 0 to 100-200
eating out minimum (10+15+15 ?) to ... maximum unlimited ]x4

Let's say 100 eu/day
WITHOUT accommodation
anybody else?

Oh, I would not be paying with traveller's cheques, I was intending to cash them as and when I needed to and pay for things with cash. It is because there will be fees taken out of my account if I use my debit card outside of the UK.

I would advise against using travellers' cheques - they are difficult to cash, even at a bank. And there is a pretty hefty charge. They are more or less a thing of the past in the EU. Even though your bank charges a fee, it is probably cheaper and easier to use your debit card. Take some Euros with you and then use an ATM as and when. Oh, I see you're going for 4 nights - in that case, I would estimate how much I would need and take it in cash. Each day just take what you will need and leave the rest in the hotel or room safe. You can pay for your accommodation with a credit card.

Hola Anita,
The only time we traveled using a travellers' cheques when we had to carry a little more than ten thousand euros to make a down payment for some personal transaction within Europe, other than that it is best to have about one thousand euros handy and the rest why don't you use your credit card. Many banks no longer charges for travellers' cheques as long as you maintain few zeros in your account, so that is not the issue. Please go smart, PICKPOCKETING IN BARCELONA IS QUITE RAMPANT! So, when speaking of money try to be ahead of the game and don't let those pickpocketing get near you.
Budget at least at 100 Euros a day. Shopping souvenir ..well, we would advise you to do your shopping at El Corte Ingles as prices are fixed and even if you pay few cents more at least you have the peace of mind of no huzzle and staff at El Corte Ingles are generally helpful. This is a department store with 9 floors and we normally go to the main location which is right at Catalunya next to or near Las Ramblas.HAPPY TRAVELING!

Travel Tips for Barcelona

It is absolutely necessary...

by Cyndel

It is absolutely necessary that you descended to marinaded it. Far from the museums, to the port, there is not an immense glazed building. Of the outside, in the beginning, one can believe in another museum, but well on the contrary it is an immense center of boutique! If you want bring back something of Barcelona of unique, pass by there! Best to discover Barcelona is to leave of the big streets and to leave to the discovery with the passing of the small alleys. There will always be someone for you help to recover your path.

L'ou com balla -- Dancing egg

by mmurie

This is a XIXth century's Barcelona custom whith a quite unknown origin, that is celebrated in th Cathedral on Corpus day.

That day the fountain of the cloister is decorated with green branches and cherries. On the top of the spout there is an egg, that with the water force it moves it and it looks like it would be dancing.

It is said, if the egg brokes, it will be a bad luck day.

Packing List

by l_joo

Rivaldo has issued an angry ultimatum to the Barcelona president Joan Gaspart accusing the club of failing to honour the multi-million dollar contract he signed last year.
The Brazilian international says that if he does not receive a salary increase he claims he is owed he will assume that the club do not want him to play for them in the forthcoming season.
In an open letter to Gaspart - part of which is reproduced on Rivaldo's personal webpage ( - the former World and European Player of the Year says he will not join the club for pre-season training unless the matter is resolved.

I could not remember where this picture was taken, but another VT member, kazander, took a picture of it as well. From her page I learned this picture was taken somewhere near the Cathedral in Barcelona. Check it out! It's quite beautiful.

Eclectic Shopping in Raval

by jhoolko about Shoes / Clothes

If you've been shoppping in Barcelona, chances are you've gotten your fair share of Zara and H&M. But for something really original, head into El Raval. Take a right on c/ Bonsucces or c/ Tallers. The latter, in particular has one incredible, nameless vintage store with an incredible selection of boots. It's on your left a few doors down. There's purchases to be made for every budget, and the area is an exciting, eclectic change from your typical shopping experience.
