CurrencyThe official currency in Slovenia is the Slovenian Tolar. It comes in coins in value of 1,2,5,10,20,50 and in paper money ranging from 10 to 10000 tolars. One Euro will buy you around 238 tolars. (this changes with the exange rates so also check elswhere)|
Exchanging Money Money can very easily be exchanged throughout the country at banks and post officies and there are also exchange officies in areas frequented by turists. Ther is usualy 0% commision if you change your money at the bank or post offices, while exchange offices tend to charge a nominal fee. Slovenina coins can't be traded back to foregin curencies so make sure you use them up.
Credit Cards, are widly accepted in all larger stores, hotels, hostels and restaurants. Visa will get you evreywhere while you might encaunter problems with the American Express.
Tipping Tipping is not usual in Slovenia, but it is accepted and will sure make the waiters day. It is usualy normal to decline the return of coins from a waiter or saleswoman since they are of little value and only tend to weigh down your wallet.
Bargaining Barganing is never an option in Slovenia. Except maybe buying from vendors at fairs or buying locla produce from farmers.
Costs Slovenia is slightly cheaper (accommodation wise) than western EU countries. Food and drinks prices are the same. Public transport is cheap, but taxis are pretty expensive.
