Hello, I'm having trouble finding an exchange bureau to exchange my Bulgarian Lev into Serbian Dinar in Belgrade. Any luck with this? Thanks in advance!
Usually best not to change. Spend all the money in the country of that type, and then get new funds from an ATM. Currency exchanges charge 10% or more. Buy an extra souvenir.
Thanks, but I'm already in Belgrade, so it's too late.
We found an exchange window at the train station. I have no idea whether you would win or lose, but you can get the exchange done if the service is still there.
I read a thread about this on TA a few months back the consensus was you should have changed it back in BG, you will not find a place to change it.
Hm...bad news indeed. I'm heading to Timisoara next, is the possibility of exchange better there?
Most exchange offices will not take your BGN, Drop by an actually bank for the exchange. Large banks hardly ever turn me away for any kind of non-popular currency exchange. Like those along Knez Mihailova St.
In May I was in Serbia, Bulgaria, and Romania. I found that I could not get any of the local currency before I left and so I used ATMs when I arrived - than found that I could not change money from one of the countries to the other, but could change my money to Euros, then in the new location, I changed the Euros to the local currency. I know this is a hassle and there is some loss of value in all the changes, but that is what I had to do. PS - I was using the "see them everywhere" currency exchange offices -
My guide confirmed that what I did was the method to use.
Had a similar problem trying to get ROmanian Lei converted to Serbian Dinar. Never found a solution. We gave away the extra Lei as presents to people who collect currency.
