Is the Czech koruna the same as the Czech crown?

Should I exchange money before going to the Czech Republic?

Definitely, converting Czech money to pounds before heading to the Czech Republic is a wise choice. Having Czech koruna on arrival makes for a smooth start to your adventure.

What is the best Czech koruna exchange rate?

The Czech koruna is the official currency of the Czech Republic. It’s the main currency for transactions. While euros might be accepted in some places, sticking with koruna is better to avoid poor exchange rates.

If you have leftover koruna after your trip, we offer a tremendous Czech koruna to sterling rate at Manor FX.

What is the best currency to take to Prague?

The best currency to take to Prague is the Czech koruna (CZK). It’s the official currency, and you’ll find it the most accepted for everyday transactions. While some places might accept euros, relying on korunas is more practical and often gives you a better value.

Can I use euros in the Czech Republic?

You don’t need to bring euros to the Czech Republic. The Czech koruna is the official currency, but euros might be accepted in tourist areas and for certain activities.

You might see prices in euros in Prague’s tourist hubs, but be cautious – the exchange rates can be high. The smart choice? Always pay in koruna to get the best deals.

For smaller purchases outside major tourist areas, having koruna is more convenient. This avoids any exchange rate issues.

In general, for simplicity and savings, stick with koruna.

Can I use my debit or credit card in the Czech Republic?

Yes, many places in the Czech Republic accept international card payments. Big hotels, top shops, large malls, and prominent supermarkets welcome international credit and debit cards.

The Czech Republic is embracing contactless payments. Keep your eye out for the contactless symbol, which means that you can tap your card for small purchases. For bigger amounts, you’ll need your PIN.

Just a heads-up: Watch out for currency conversion fees and bank charges. The rate your bank offers for Czech koruna might not be the best, as banks often add their own fees.

Is it better to use cash or card in the Czech Republic?

The Czech Republic still appreciates cash, especially for small buys like street food, local transport, or market souvenirs.

Cash transactions are usually quicker and easier, as some smaller sellers and countryside shops might not take cards. However, having a card as a backup for more extensive costs or emergencies is wise.

Overall, a mix of cash and card works best in the Czech Republic. Use cash for small daily purchases and a card for bigger spending, just in case.

At Manor FX, we give you the best rate for Czech koruna, so remember to exchange any leftover currency when you’re back.

Is the Czech Republic a budget-friendly destination?

Absolutely, the Czech Republic suits all wallets. Local eats and transport are affordable, and there are many free or cheap attractions. With smart planning, you can have a brilliant time without breaking the bank.

How much cash will I need in the Czech Republic?

When planning a trip to the Czech Republic, how much cash you’ll need can vary depending on what you want to do and your spending habits. Here’s a breakdown for different budgets:

Budget travellers

  • GBP: Around £250 to £300
  • Czech Koruna: Roughly 7,000 CZK to 8,400 CZK

For budget travellers, this should cover hostel stays, public transport, cheap eats, and some entry fees for attractions.

Mid-range travellers

  • GBP: About £350 to £500
  • Czech Koruna: Approximately 9,800 CZK to 14,000 CZK

This budget is more suitable if you prefer private rooms, dining out at mid-range restaurants, and more paid attractions.

Luxury travellers

  • GBP: From £600 upwards
  • Czech Koruna: Starting from 16,800 CZK

You’ll need a higher budget for those wanting to stay in nicer hotels, enjoy fine dining, and indulge in experiences like guided tours.

Remember, these are just estimates. It’s always a good idea to bring a bit extra, just in case, and keep in mind that having both cash and a card is the most convenient.

How can I avoid ATM fees in the Czech Republic?

Pick ATMs from well-known banks to keep fees low and withdraw bigger sums less often to cut down on charges.

See if your bank has agreements with Czech banks for fee-free ATM use. 

Or, order Czech koruna from us beforehand to dodge ATM worries altogether. 

Do you tip in the Czech Republic?

Tipping for good service is appreciated. 10% is usually expected in restaurants. A little extra for taxis and hotel staff is always a nice gesture.
