Travel advise: payments in Croatia
Jet off well-informed to Croatia. Here are some handy facts about cash and card payments in Croatia.
Yes. Card payments are accepted throughout Croatia in virtually all shops, hotels and restaurants.
Contactless payments are available for amounts up to 100 HRK. For payments of more than 100 HRK a pin code is required.
Some British banks may charge for international card payments. In addition your bank's HRK to GBP exchange rate may not be so good. This is how banks make money. Before using your bank card for payments in Croatia, it's certainly a good idea to contact your bank. This will avoid your card becoming blocked due to international transactions that your bank may find suspicious.
You should ideally take some HRK cash along on your trip to Croatia. Cash remains a popular payment method in Croatia and it a great fallback option if for some reason card payments are declined.
Street vendors, taxi drivers and traders on local markets, festivals, party boats and beaches will often only accept cash payments.
Prices in Croatia are on average around 20% lower than prices in the UK. However touristic areas in Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik may be more pricey.
For a coffee, expect to pay around 10 kuna. A three-course meal in a mid-range restaurant will set you back around 120 kuna.
Leaving a tip is generally expected in Croatia, especially in tourist-heavy places in Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split. A 10% tip is standard. If you are happy about the service you should consider giving a tip of around 15%.
Banknotes in Croatia
Croatian banknotes haven't changed much since they were introduced in 1993. However, banknotes dated 1993 and 1995 are no longer accepted for payments. Check the date on your Croatian banknotes and don't accept HRK notes dated 1993 or 1995.
Banknotes in circulation in Croatia are 10 kuna, 20 kuna, 50 kuna, 100 kuna and 200 kuna. The banknotes of 500 and 1000 kuna are rarely found in circulation. The banknotes of 5 kuna have been replaced by coins.
