Netherlands uses the Euro. For more information on currency conversions visit XE. Before you leave, notify your bank, credit card company, or other financial institutions that you are going overseas. Avoid carrying cash and consider using traveler's checks or major credit cards instead (but make sure they are accepted at your destination before departing on your trip).

Many services already have a service charge added to the bill. If this is the case, you aren't obliged to tip extra. Tipping in the Netherlands, like in most of Europe, isn't really expected. However, leaving extra change or rounding up the bill in restaurants, bars and cafés is common.
Imagine your reaction if your deposition had to be rescheduled because of a major local holiday when everything was closed. Don’t let that happen to your depo. You can see a complete list of holidays in the Netherlands here: timeanddate.com/holidays/netherlands/.
Check with your physician to see which shots are required and/or recommended for your trip to the Netherlands. You can check online resources like the U.S. Department of State Netherlands country page or contact the Dutch Embassy or Consulate for current entry requirements. The World Health Organization (WHO) can provide their recommendations for vaccinations and other travel health precautions for your trip abroad.
