You can usually find the best Croatian rates online, and using our table means you have access to rates which are updated every ten minutes. Here is what to do:
Compare as many exchange rates as you can
Find the highest possible Croatian kuna exchange rate
Look out for delivery charges
Do not order more than you need: You will rarely get a good deal to exchange your leftover Croatian kuna back into sterling.
You can sometimes find special offers if you buy more; such as free delivery or a better exchange rate if you order over a set amount, e.g. over £500.

It is the official currency of Croatia, and a Croatian kuna is made up of 100 lipa.
If you need to exchange money in Croatia, make sure you use reliable places such as banks or ATMs.
What coins and notes can you get?
The Croatian kuna uses several coins and notes, including:
Lipa coins: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50
Kuna coins: 1, 2 and 5
Kuna notes: 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000
