Money

On 1 January 2011 Estonia joined the eurozone, bidding a very fond farewell to its short-lived kroon. ATMs are plentiful and credit cards are widely accepted. Travellers cheques have gone the way of the dinosaurs; most banks will still exchange them but commissions can be high. Tipping in restaurants has become the norm; round the bill up to something approaching 10% (or less).
