Logistical matters

Please note that guests are responsible for all telephone, meal and extra service charges generated at their hotel, bed & breakfast or private apartment. Please inform yourself of these charges and methods of payment to avoid possible misunderstandings at the check-out. Guests should ask about payment options at the check-in of their hotel. Check-out time from a hotel is usually at noon – please make sure to leave your room by the designated time (which you will verify at the hotel check-in at your arrival), as the Festival will not cover extra costs of stay.

Please notify the Hospitality Service staff of any changes in your schedule and your departure time at your earliest convenience. You should notify the Hospitality Desk staff about your departure one day prior to it, so that they can inform you about the necessary details concerning the transportation options from your hotel to the airport.


Payment in Euro bills will not be accepted. Euros, US dollars, British pounds, Yens and other major currencies can be exchanged at the banks and exchange offices that are present all over the city. You can also swap your leftover KMs back into any of these main currencies. Banks are open from 09:00 till 18:00 on working days, and from 09:00 till 13:00 on Saturdays. 

Credit cards are widely accepted in shops and restaurants. VISA and Master cards will be accepted in most places.


Vaccination prior to the arrival to Bosnia and Herzegovina is not necessary. In case you should need medical assistance during your stay in Sarajevo, we enclose a list of places where you can turn to for help.
