I have to pay in cash for my rental in Dubrovnik. Can I rely on getting about thousand euro in local ATM in one or two withdrawals?
Local ATMs dispense Kuna. Kuna is the legal currency, not Euros. Your host cannot demand Euros, it's illegal. Prices are often quoted in Euros because it suits the majority of visitors, but Kuna is always acceptable. Tell your host that you need to pay in Kuna and get him to confirm the price.
thanks! but will the local ATM issue this amount in Kuna (equivalent of thousand euro)?
I'm not too sure. My bank limits me to GBP 250 per day, so I have never tried for more.
I think if you have to go above the daily limit, you will have to go with your card to some bank's branch office and do it at the counter. This is how I had to do in Italy, when I needed a larger amount than daily limit on my card.
But it is best that you inquire also in your bank beforehand.Edited: 05 August 2018, 01:48
Check with your bank before you go to see if you can increase daily limits....how many days will you be there...we just took out the most we could every day to get up to what we needed.
In Croatia, daily withdrawal and transaction limits are set by the issuing bank.
For me, it is 10.000 kuna per day, but 2.000 kuna per transaction, meaning I would need to use the ATM 5 times.
For you, this will inflate fees that your bank imposes per withdrawal - there is no fee on our side.
So, check with your bank about limits and fees.
In all honest, I would also bring euro cash - if your whole trip revolves around this one transaction, just imagine all the things that could go wrong.
Some banks I believe still issue the travelers cheques...
Just take it with you and pay as soon as you arrive. The exchange rate in the UK was better for me in any event by around 0.5 kun a to the £, so that's a significant amount on around €1000
Check with your bank. There is daily limit. I don't think you can withdraw 1000 euros a day.
