i will be arriving in amsterdam on dec.31 will i need guilders
for the lockers,tramsor will all that be converted to the euro.i
was hpeing i could get by wiyhout guilders.will the coffee shops
take euro on dec.31 thanks for any info

First of all, you can't get euros, even if you wanted, before january 1, 2002. So there's no way for you to arrive with euros. It's true there's a 1 month grace period in which you can spend your last guilders and get euros for change. On the evening and during the night of New Year's Eve a whole army of technicians will convert most, if not all machines to accept euros instead of guilders so I guess you will need euro change on jannuary 1, 2002. All ATM's will have only two or three small euro dominations beginning 2002, only a couple of days later will you be able to get all euro notes.Hope this helps!Hans
