Buying Czech Koruna: FAQs

Can I sell my unused Czech Koruna?

If you took more cash than you needed on your trip, we can buy back CZA notes in denominations we sell (buy back rates vary daily). Simply bring your unused Czech Koruna to a Sainsbury’s Travel Money bureau and we’ll exchange them back to Pounds. Nectar members also get better rates when selling Czech Koruna for pounds.

Can I use Euros in the Czech Republic?

Some shops, hotels and restaurants accept payments in euro, but usually with a worse exchange rate than if you pay in Czech Koruna. With a Travel Money Card™ you can deposit Pounds and pay in the currency of your choosing. 

Should I take cash to the Czech Republic?

While many establishments now accept card and contactless payments, some local restaurants, bars, cafes and shops may still require cash. So it’s sensible to take some cash with you, or a Travel Money Card™ that allows you to make ATM withdrawals.
