Plastic Money
Most common cards are VISA, MasterCard, EuroCard/MasterCard, Maestro and Visa Electron. In case you have American Express there will be only few places where you will be able to use it.
Paying with card is now possible almost everywhere although the small shops as groceries, newsagents and post offices do not always accept them. There is plenty of ATMs so whenever you cannot pay with a card there is always possibility to withdraw cash from a nearby ATM.

 

Banking
In case you do not speak Slovak it does not mean you will not be able to do your bank transactions. Many banks have most of the documentation and internet banking bilingual and you should always be able to find somebody at the local branch that can help you in English or German.
