Currency, paying and banks

Finland’s currency is the euro. You can find a currency exchange service in the Galleria Shopping Centre Kauppakatu 40, Lappeenranta . There are also several banks in Lappeenranta in which you can exchange currency. Unfortunately, you often have to be a regular customer of the bank to do so. Banks are usually open from Monday to Friday from 10.00 to 16.30.

You can withdraw cash from ATMs if you have one of the most common debit/credit cards. The closest ATM to Forum venue is by the supermarkets near the campus at Orioninkatu 12. There are also many more in Lappeenranta. Their locations can be found here.

Most common credit cards (VISA, VISA Electron, MasterCard, Diners Club) are usually accepted in stores. You can also use the Western Union service for money transfer. Western Union agents in Lappeenranta are located in the Makuuni video rental store, Kauppakatu 45 and in Matkahuolto at Ratakatu 21.
