CURRENCY & CREDIT CARDS
From January 1st 2007 Slovenia has been using Euro as official currency. Before Euro it was Tolar. ATMs are literally everywhere and you shouldn`t have problems finding one. Credit cards are widely accepted.
Currency and Costs
You can exchange travelling checques 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.
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 ;).
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.
