  • You can't get hold of KM (convertible marka) outside of Bosnia&Herzegovina (except for a few exchange offices in the Serbia and Montenegro: http://www.cbbh.ba/index.php?id=20&la... )so you'll probably need to exchange once you arrive.

  • Remember to exchange any leftover currency before you leave the country because you won't be able to once you're home.

ATM's, Credit/Debit Cards and similar

  • Most of the shops and restaurants in all the larger cities (Sarajevo, Mostar, Doboj, Tuzla, Zenica, Bihac, etc) accept credit/debit cards. There are some small ones and almost all in smaller towns that don't. So it might be a good idea to have some cash with you.

  • There is at least one ATM in every place that has more than a few residents.

Regional

  • If you are arriving in Doboj there is a bank on the road to your right as you head south from the bus/train station. It's up a flight of stairs and isn't obvious but look for the yellow Western Union sign. There is no ATM.
  •   Doboj is full of banks and there is a proper currency exchange as well as a Post Office which will also do it for you.
