Now that the summer season is upon us we often get the question “What currency should I use in Croatia?”. Kuna is the official currency in Croatia and is most widely used. Larger items such as villa or apartment rentals, car rentals, tours, and transfers are often priced in Euro, but can usually be paid for in either Euro or Kuna. Local businesses such as restaurants and shops price in Kuna and most only accept Kuna. Some restaurants, shops, and cafes in popular tourist areas such as Dubrovnik’s Old Town will accept Euro, but generally at a poor exchange rate. Very few, if any, businesses accept British Pounds or U.S. Dollars.
to Croatia can get Kuna from ATM machines at all the major airports and
at banks in city centers throughout Croatia. Most airports and cities
also have exchange offices that will exchange a variety of currencies
(and travelers’ checks) for Kuna. However, the best rates are usually
obtained at ATM machines.
