The most popular credits are usually accepted in Vienna, although sometimes their use is subject to a minimum purchase amount. You can use your Maestro card (bank ATM card) almost everywhere - especially in shops - even for small amounts.
You can withdraw cash with Maestro and credit cards at cash dispensers, which can be found everywhere in the city.
If you need to exchange money, you are best doing this at a bank. Foreign exchange booths sometimes charge high fees, so please check, before you change your money.
Most banks in Vienna are open from Monday to Friday from 8.00 am to 12.30 pm and from 1.30 pm to 3.00 pm, and until 5.30 pm on Thursdays. In the city centre (1st district), almost all banks are open over lunchtime.
In many service areas, such as restaurants, taxis, hairdressers, serviced filling stations, etc., a tip is traditionally given. This is normally 5 to 10 percent, with the exact amount depending on the level of satisfaction with the service provided.
