Money tips for travelers

• Always exchange money in a bank or use an ATM - you can find one or two in every major city, and a lot more in Prague and the surrounding area.

• Be careful with exchange offices. Many have chosen tourists as their destinations and you could end up paying a hefty commission without even knowing it.

• Never exchange money on the street when it is suggested to you. No money is exchanged here, but stolen.

• Do not carry large amounts of cash with you. Use a credit card to withdraw money from the machine from time to time. You can also use the card to pay for your purchases yourself. The leading credit cards are accepted in many places.
