Czech in Czech Republic


Banks and Money Exchanges

Travelers can exchange currencies at a variety of national and foreign banks or exchange bureaus. In tourist areas, exchange bureaus have longer hours of operation. It is always good to shop around for the best exchange and commission rates. Some agencies charge a flat percentage while others have a fee. One or the other is more advantageous depending on the amount being exchanged.

ATMs are widely available to dispense Czech currency with the insertion of a bankcard. It is best to avoid the random money-changer one may encounter on the street.
