                Benefits of planning ahead

                Exchange rates can go up and down every day, so it’s worth keeping an eye on the Pound to Koruna rate before you travel.

                Our travel money services can help you avoid buying Koruna at the last minute when you’ll have less choice over rates and our buying and collection options mean you can get your currency sorted the way that’s most convenient for you.

                  Get your currency when it's convenient for you

                  Click & Collect lets you buy Czech Koruna online with Tesco Bank, then gives you the option to have it delivered to one of over 560 Tesco stores that offer the service. It’s quick, convenient and available when you’re ready to buy.

                  It’s worth remembering that exchange rates can go up or down throughout the day and can change whether you are buying online, in-store or over the phone.

                    Handy information about the Czech Republic and the Koruna (CZK)

                    Currency Denominations

                    • Koruna comes in coins of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50
                    • Koruna also comes in banknotes of 100 Kč, 200 Kč, 500 Kč, 1,000 Kč, 2,000 Kč, and 5,000 Kč
                    • While the Euro is used in the Czech Republic, it’s not widely accepted and may have a weaker exchange rate

                    Spending and exchanging the Koruna

                    • Currency bureaux can be found in most banks across the Czech Republic, and many include currency exchange machines for quick use.
                    • Be cautious about street sellers who offer to exchange cash for you on the street, as they may offer you discontinued Koruna notes, or Hungarian Forints instead.
                    • Some currency bureaux may offer you “no-fee” withdrawals, but charges may be hidden by a lesser exchange rate. Check the actual rate online before you withdraw to see if you’re getting a good deal.

                    Facts about Czech ATMs

                    • ATMs are common across the Czech Republic, and you will typically be charged a withdrawal fee
                    • Some ATMs may not tell you the fee upfront, so be aware of this when trying to take out your cash
                    • Paying withdrawal fees in Koruna is an option at most ATMs, and this typically lowers the fee

                    Buying foreign currency using a credit or debit card

                    No matter how you purchase your travel money, whether it be in store, online or over the phone, you will not be charged any card handling fee by us.

                      You can cancel a Click & Collect order any time prior to collection. We'll refund you with the full Sterling amount that you paid for your order, unless you cancel less than 24 hours before your collection date, in which case we'll charge a £10 late cancellation fee.

                      We are unable to refund any fees charged by your card issuer, so please contact them if you have any further queries.
