I have purchased about 8,000 Euros as I am going to study in Netherlands soon. I received ten 500 Euro banknotes and the reset in 100s and 50s. Recently I read that spending 500s is actually pretty difficult, however I want to deposit them as soon as I arrive.
Do banks in Netherlands accept them to deposit in my account or I will run into problems?
P.S the reason that I don't want to break those 500 banknotes down is that it would be really dangerous and difficult to carry and travel with them. So I would rather have a manageable amount of banknotes with me on flight.
