I am a South African that will be traveling to Croatia in a few weeks and wanted to find out about foreign exchange. Here in South Africa, I can't find Croatian Kuna at any of our foreign exchange stores - they insist I should convert to Euros and then once in Croatia, exchange the Euros to Kuna. I'm afraid with our weak rand and the current exchange rate I will lose a lot in the rand - euro - kuna exchange and wanted to find out if South African Rand is widely accepted at foreign exchange stores in Croatia?
I'm hoping to exchange Rand to Kuna at the Zagreb airport, does anybody know if I will have trouble with this?
My bank fees are way too high to simply take my card and swipe when needed, I would prefer to have some amount of local currency on me and not have to pay my exorbitant bank fees for international transactions
Thanks in advance!
