We are staying in akcent in december for xmas markets. i was wondering what currency to take. Do i change it all to czech koruna or take it in english and change it out there
Im sory i read your question so late :-( I really hope you enjoyed your xmas stay in Prague, before xmas is Prague one of the most beautifull cities. And Im sure you had no problém with our courency as Prague is European and inernational city so no problém topay with any credit cards use ATm of one of thousends Exchange offices.-)
We took Czech
Just use ATM which you will find many places. Do not bother to bring cash.
We exchanged there and unfortunately paid a hefty service fee to do it. Many places are very unfair as they advertise a competitive exchange rate but then build in a fee. I didn't know where else to go as a brand new traveler so I paid the fee. There are many money exchangers that are fair and will give you a great rate. Next time I go I would take a little local currency to get me through the first day and then find a place there to exchange the rest. Even my cab driver laughed at me when he heard how much extra I paid. he pointed out 3 places to go on the drive to the hotel. Live and learn!!
