The zloty (zł, PLN) is the Polish currency unit. One zloty is divided into 100 groszy (1 zł = 100 gr).
Banknotes and coins of the following denominations are in use:
banknotes: 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, and 500 zł (PLN)
coins: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 gr and 1, 2, 5 zł (PLN)
Currencies can be exchanged in banks or some hotels, but the rates might be not too favorable. For better rates, visit a currency exchange office (Polish name: kantor). You can also use ATMs (Polish name: bankomat), which accept most international cards (including Visa and MasterCard). Your withdrawal will be in zloty. Current exchange rate is approx. 1 Euro = 4.3 PLN (as of August 13th, 2018).
Most restaurants, hotels, and shops accept Visa and MasterCard. Some accept also American Express, JCB, and Eurocard, although it is always a good idea to keep cash for pocket expenses.
Tips are not expected in Poland and there is no obligation to give them. They should only be given when you are satisfied with the service. The usual amount is 5−10% of the bill; in more expensive restaurants this amount is automatically included in the bill as a payment for service.
Prices of groceries are lower in Poland than in most of Western Europe. Shopping is the cheapest in hypermarkets and at markets, while corner shops tend to be more expensive.
