Currency & Changing Money
Slovakia's currency is the euro, which became sole legal tender in January 2009. Foreign currency can be changed in banks or bureaux de change. Credit cards (American Express, Diners Club, Visa and Eurocard/Mastercard) and debit cards (Maestro and Visa Electron) are widely accepted.
All large banks accept traveller’s cheques issued by Thomas Cook, American Express and Visa. The charge for changing travellers' cheques is a minimum of 1% of the cheque's nominal value. Bureaux de change are located in all bank branches, and at many supermarkets and hotels. There are also bureaux de change at the airport and the main railway station.
