Heading to Croatia, Bosnia and Hungary next month and trying to decide how to split my money.
Planning to pay for my accommodation on my UK debit card, but since I am visiting countries with different currencies, not sure how to split my spending money as I don't necessarily fancy carrying cash around.
In Split and Zagreb, I am staying in a hostel, but for the remainder of my trip in Dubrovnik, Mostar, Sarajevo and Budapest I am in private accommodation.
Would it be best to take out money in each place, or pre order some foreign currency for each destination etc?

It's my hunch that you'll get better rates locally in all three countries, than in The UK.
Eastern Europe generally has much better For-ex rates than over here.
Just pay the card fee(s) and withdraw from ATM's when needed.
Incidentally, while in Croatia or Bosnia you decide pop into Montenegro (just stunning), it's currency is the €uro.
If you've already got €uros, there'll be no need to use an ATM.
From Dubrovnik to Montenegro is a short road trip. Do it if you can, it's one of Europe's most beautiful locations.
Hope you have a really great time.

Will have to see about the trip to Montenegro - might leave that for next time when I go to Serbia as well!
