Use of the currency outside the country
The zloty is not used outside of the country. Most of the countries do not accept the currency since they feel it is substandard and it is not recognized. Other countries use the USD and Pounds for transactions.
Exchanging currency in the country
The primary option is the use of exchange houses or bureaus, which are called â€œkantorâ€ in Poland. These can be found all around the country in places like airports and banks.
We do not recommend the use of ATMs, as they have the lowest rates and they don't perform exchange of cash, instead you need a bank card. This makes them very uncomfortable and not very useful.
We recommend exchanging euros while in Poland, as the rates are more favourable, plus there's a lot of places in Poland that accept euros as payment, so they can be of great use while you're there.

Given the current crisis in my country, I was forced to move abroad to find a better financial life. I’ve been living and working in a good UK job for two years now. Although my wife and children came with me I send money to my relatives in Greece very often. Every time I do so I make sure I'm getting a good currency exchange deal by checking online how to send money abroad at the best rates.
