Currency and Costs
You can exchange travelling cheques or cash from your currency to Euro in almost any bank or post office.
Prices of goods in Slovenia are generally higher than in Hungary and Croatia and lower than in Italy and Austria.
Credit and debit cards like Visa, MasterCard or American Express are widely accepted by all the tourist attractions, hotels, restaurants. However, you can still find some small bars or shops that deal with cash only.
Don`t forget to take a receipt after your payment. By the law you have to keep it until you exit a shop, hotel, restaurant. However, there is higher possibility you win a lottery ticket than being stopped, checked and fined, if you`re find without it. It is just that the laws are sometimes the way they are – funny and super impractical.
If it happens, don`t say we didn`t warn you ;).
Tipping in Slovenia is getting more and more common but it is not obligatory. It is appreciated, polite and appropriate for a good service, though.
Not tipping is ok, rounding up is welcome, adding 10 or 20 % should bring a big smile on a face of your waiter.
When paying for a taxi, simply rounding up should be ok.
