Money Exchange tips:
There are lots of money exchanger scams in Prague. The Money Exchangers are normally charging hidden charges along with a high conversion rate. As I was already being warned by my friend about these scams I still paid around €17 for converting €100. The money exchanger provided a good rate and asked me to sign the agreement and on the below of the statement, there was a small text written about the 17% fees.
If you have Euros with you, the Best trick is to go to McDonald’s and buy a meal from there. They do accept Euro and pay you back in Czech currency according to the Rate.
