More Information

  • Though they're not in the EU, Montenegro uses the euro (€) and we quote all prices in that currency, unless otherwise stated.
  • You’ll find banks with ATMs (bankomat) in all the main towns, most of which accept Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and Cirrus. ATMs tend to dish out big notes, which can be hard to break.
  • Don’t rely on restaurants, shops or smaller hotels accepting credit cards.
