Corsica is expensive and a holiday in Corsica may cost you more than some other islands in the Mediterranean however with higher prices comes less tourists and development, which means it has retained it’s charm and unspoilt nature where other parts of Europe have not.
Once there you will find a reasonable menu in most towns for around €20 (approx £17). Supermarkets offer a wide range of goods but those not produced locally may be more expensive the UK.
It is virtually impossible to change Travellers Cheques in Corsica so we do not recommend that you take them.
Credit cards are now very widely accepted - the exception being some of the restaurants in the mountain villages.
All of the banks have ATM machines for the withdrawal of cash.
It may be a good idea to keep an eye on the exchange rate for the Euro before you travel so you have a better idea of value whilst you are on your holiday or withdrawing monies.
Remember to check with your bank before you travel regarding withdrawal of cash whilst you are in Corsica, and any if there are associated charges. Also, in some cases if you have not spoken to your bank before travel and they notice your card being used in another country, they may think that your card has been stolen.
