Before you come to the Netherlands, the TU/e will send an email to arrange making a Dutch bank account for you. More information and guidelines can be found in the TU/e website under Bank account.

If this is not the case and you have to arrange for your own Dutch bank account, this can be easily done by contacting one of the many Dutch banks such as Rabobank or ING.

Shopping and Paying

Most shops in the Netherlands, and europe in general, do not take credit cards (e.g VISA, Mastercard, etc). It is also important to note that most shops will not take notes of €100 or more, due to fraud cases in the past. Almost all places in the Netherlands accept pin (bank card payment) so you do not always have to have cash on you. Some vending machines only accept wireless card payment.
