Can leftover kuna be changed to euro in Italy by any chance? Thanks.
I'm sure there are places in Italy that will change kuna to euro, but you won't get a very good exchange rate.
Thanks, Lee. The exchange rate at FCO is indeed horrible. I changed mine in Dubrovnik old town.
I am going to Croatia in September. Starting in Zagreb. Then on to Plitvice, Zadar, Split, Dubrovnik and finishing back in Zagreb.
Wondering about money. Are American credit cards accepted much?
I usually carry cash when traveling in Europe.
How much per day would you say to budget?
My budget is for 2 travelers.
Hotels are already booked and paid for.
So, my expenses will be for eating, drinking and transportation.
Croatia is very cash-based. Credit cards are more likely to be accepted at bigger hotels and places offering more expensive services. For restaurants, drinks, and transportation, you'll need cash.
How much money is spent in a day can vary from traveler to traveler, but Lonely Planet has some rough numbers you can use to get an idea of what expenses you're looking at. See http://www.lonelyplanet.com/croatia/money-costs.
Credit card (magnetic strip) was commonly accepted in restaurants and grocery stores. You would need cash for intercity transportation, such as buses.
Thanks Mike and GW.
That's exactly what I was looking for.
