    Florins to US Dollar Conversions

    Does anyone know of a site that I can print out a conversion chart of florins to dollars? I just want to know what groceries cost when I go to the store. Thanks!

    There are plenty more out there just type in florins to dollars in any search engine.
    Hope this helps

    Know it might be too obvious, but I do this simple calculation in my head:

    Florins / 2 +14% i.e. 150 florins = 75 + approx. 10 = 85 US$

    After a bunch of Pina Colada, a simpler version is to add 10% which would make it 75+7.5=82.5 which would put you just under the right amount, but what the heck, you are on holiday .

    I always use oanda.com for foreign currency conversion. They have a neat little cheat sheet you can print out for any currency prior to a trip.

    carsten i do your kind of sober mental math too.
    total florins divide by 2 plus 14% = conversion to dollars.
    i always have probs with the 14%

    I was never good in math.
    The above has always been my conversion method of choice.

    I printed out the OANDA cheat sheet just in case I'm not able to do the Pina Colada version during our Kukoo Kunuku trip. LOL...

    Thank you everyone!
