Bargaining

A bit of haggling (especially if you know some Serbian) at flea markets is fine, if not expected, but you’re expected to pay the stated price everywhere else (including at produce markets).

Money

ATMs are found in all main and mid-sized towns; all major credit cards are accepted.

More Information

Serbia's currency is the dinar (DIN); though accommodation prices are often quoted in euro, you must pay in dinar.

ATMs are widespread and cards are accepted by established businesses. There's an exchange office (menjačnica) on every street corner. Exchange machines accept euros, US dollars and British pounds.
