If you're going skiing in Europe, you may well be using euros at your chosen resort.
Paul Stokes, from M&S Bank, recently offered some advice about travel money, in an effort to help the British public, and these are just some of his tips.
He says holidaymakers should take both cash and a debit card or credit card, so they've got more than one payment method at their disposal.
The expert also advises creating a budget for the break - including the amount of travel money that will be needed. Even people using all-inclusive and half-board accommodation should remember to factor-in cash to use for things like tips, he says
The festival takes place in Cluses, Haute-Savoie, and this year is its 15th staging, the official website explains.
It costs nothing to attend, and the fest is set to take place between July 1st and 4th.
On the 1st, French group EZ3kiel will be performing. They're scheduled to hit the stage at 11.45pm. Before them, the evening consists of Doorsfall, Husbands, Magnus and I am Un Chien all doing their thing.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will appear on the 2nd, following performances from Last Train, Jack and the Giant Bean, Hanni El Khatib and The Fleshtones.
Johnny Marr will perform on July 3rd. It's a solo show from a man who first came to fame in 1980s indie group The Smiths. He provided the music for the group's songs, including Panic, This Charming Man and Ask. Morrissey famously penned the lyrics.
The French destination will welcome the event - the Festival de Jazz de Brides les Bains or simply 'Jazz a Brides' - between July 8th and 11th.
The event's official website explains that no fewer than 14 concerts will make up this jazz extravaganza. It's the third staging of the jazz-filled occasion to be held.
The run-down of gigs includes a July 8th show from the Vitamine Jazz Band; Benoit Blue Boy & les Tortilleurs playing on the 9th and Boney Fields and the Bone's Project doing their thing on the 10th. Meanwhile Gipsy Nouveau will perform on the 11th.
The museum can be found on Rue de la Condémine, Bulle and is open both during the winter and the summer. Generally, it is open daily apart from on Mondays.
Hitting Gruyere for a skiing trip next winter? You could have the chance to see a temporary photography exhibition at the museum, a spot which is sure to offer you a change of pace away from the slopes.
