Currency Exchange
We recommend exchanging your pounds to euros before arriving to Nice as if you do it here, you will receive a lower rate than what you would normally in England. There are many currency exchanges in Nice. Here are a few we recommend:
Ria Exchange, 25 Rue d’Italie.
BNC Change, 17 Avenue Jean Medecin.
Change de la Pietonne. 2 Rue de France.

Alternatively, you can withdraw money from an ATM any time you need it, however some banks charge an extortionate price.

Emergency services
It is more than likely you will not need to use these numbers during your Pebbles holiday, however lets rather be safe than sorry. 112 is the French equivalent of dialling 999 or 911. Call 18 for the Pompiers (firemen), 17 for the Police or 15 for an ambulance. Please note these are for emergencies only.

After reading this we are sure you are prepped with all the information needed if you find yourself in a bit of a sticky situation, but of course we hope your holiday runs smoothly. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries.
