Money

The Serbian currency is the dinar (RSD). You can change money in a bank or any of the exchange offices dotting the city (they are marked with the logo of the National Bank of Serbia). Most banks in Belgrade will change travellers cheques, American Express, Thomas Cook, VISA and Eurocheques. Western Union money transfers from abroad can be collected from the post office and most banks. You can buy almost all goods and services with bank cards, and you need cash only for green markets and parking fees. Throughout the city, there is a large number of ATMs where you can collect money 24h. Cards widely acceptable in Belgrade are VISA, VISA Electron, MasterCard, American Express, Eurocard, Maestro, Diners Club and local DinaCard. Euro is definitely the best currency to take to Serbia. While US Dollar, Canadian Dolar and British Pound will be accepted, the commission fee is far greater than the one for Euro. Please don’t forget to exchange money at the airport if you do not hold any dinars.

Getting around

Public Transportation

Belgrade does not have an underground railway system, but still its public transport network cover almost all areas. City transport comprises buses, trams and trolleybuses.

There are several types of tickets (image given below):

  • Ticket bought from the driver, at cost of RSD 150 (€1.30);

  • Prepaid paper ticket that is bought at kiosks; it costs RSD 40  (€0.4) and is empty when bought, so you have to put some money on it;

  • Tourist paper ticket is bought at kiosks too; it costs RSD 250 (€2.20) for one day, RSD 700 (€6) for three and RSD 1,000 for five days (€8.50);

  • Prepaid ticket that looks like a credit card; it costs RSD 250 (€2.10) and is also empty when bought; can be recharged to any amount.

All tickets (except those bought from the driver) must be validated on machines inside the vehicle (image to the right). Every time you validate your ticket, the amount of RSD 89 (€0.75) will be subtracted from the total amount on your. Public transport runs from 04:00 to 00:00. During night time, buses run at half-hour intervals. Night buses depart from special stops at the Republic Square towards other parts of the city. The night fare is RSD 150 (€1.30), available on board (you can't use your daily ticket for the night rides, tickets must be bought on board). You are advised to avoid trams if you are in a hurry.

Transport authorities routinely check tickets for validation — especially at peak hours on major lines.

Taxi Services

There are numerous taxi terminals throughout the city or you can flag one down on the street. Most hotels are happy to book a taxi for you with a reputable company and advise on the likely cost of the fare; prices are reasonable whenever you travel, but rise a little after midnight and on Sundays. Official taxis have a blue sign on the roof in contrast to privately owned cabs having a white marker on the top. Also, official taxis have their license plates ending with TX (for example: BG-1234-TX).
