Normally the answer is 'no'. However, for Mallorca the answer is 'yes'. I last visited Mallorca in 2002 (or was it 2003?). I was surprised to find NO money change counters in the airport. This was a first! At least there were no cambios in the terminal that Lufthansa and Spanair land in.

I did find two ATM machines. One was a normal machine which unfortunately would not accept my Bank of America ATM card. The other was an American Express ATM which would not accept my Amex card PIN number.

In town the local Barclays Bank branch would not convert my US $100 dollar bills. I just walked a few steps to another bank and then was able to convert my USA currency to Euro.

Other than these minor $ issues, you will enjoy the beach, landscape, scenery and culture of Mallorca. Have fun.
