  1. Spain is definately No.1 in Europe for having by far the highest number of €500 notes in circulation. I nearly ended up in a tricky situation when visiting France in 2007 as I decided I did’nt want to incur charges on my Sterling cr/card so took cash.

    It was late in the day and I had to visit 3 different French banks before I found one that would accept a €500 note to break down into reasonable denominations. I had to show my passport and supply documentation of where I lived in Spain before they would.

    I doubt that brown envelopes have disappeared in Spain.
