Exchange Rate:
The Polish Zloty exchange rate may fluctuate many times during the day. Major foreign currencies may be exchanged for Polish Zloty at the banks or exchange counters / kiosks, identified by the name KANTOR. They are located in many places like hotels, train and bus stations at the airport (the worst exchange rate), shopping malls as well as main streets in the cities. Kantors are open between 9:00 am to 7:00-8:00 pm, but some might be open 24 hours.

In Poland is used Polish Zloty, but some places honor Euro too. To check currency exchange  rate, please visit xe.com

An offer to exchange money by an unknown person on the street, while very rare, is almost certainly a scam.

You need to have credit card if you plan to rent a car or for online purchases. Holders of credit cards can obtain cash from banks or ATMs. Automated teller machines (ATMs) are widely available throughout major cities in Poland. Most Polish ATMs offer instructions in multiple languages and allow access to U.S. bank accounts. Visitors requiring ATM services should attempt to use machines at more secure or heavily traveled and monitored locations, such as commercial banks, large hotels, and the airport. You should monitor your personal bank account after traveling. But in some smaller towns or  local kiosks you need to pay with cash only. 


Traveler's Checks:

Major traveler’s checks can be exchanged for polish currency. When traveling to smaller towns, it is better to have some cash in reserve. Eurochecks are accepted in accordance with standard international tourism agreements.
