Why Order Travel Money With TUI?
How to make more of your Czech koruna on holiday
Off to the Czech Republic soon? Make sure you have your spending money sorted before you leave. The currency in the Czech Republic is the Czech koruna – ‘crown’ in English. Some places also accept euros, but you’ll have an easier time using koruna.
The exchange rate between the pound and the koruna varies, but the average was around 29.26CZK to every £1 in 2018.
Where to get Czech koruna
You can order and collect your koruna from TUI at your nearest TUI Store, or buy them online from us if you prefer.
The multi-currency TUI Travel Money card carries up to 13 currencies while you’re travelling, including Euros, so you might consider taking it as well. You can use it just like a debit card, though fees will apply if using it in place of koruna.
A guide to using Czech koruna
Whether you’re in Prague’s main tourist hub or elsewhere in the Czech Republic, budget for about 2500CZK per person per day, although budgets can, of course, vary. To work out a more personalised budget, take a look at our online budget planner here.
A 10% tip is generally considered about right for tourists in the Czech Republic, particularly in tourism hubs like Prague. It’s different in the countryside, though. Ask the locals out there what the norm is in their area – English is fairly widely spoken.
