Preparing for Vienna: Tips & Hints

1. The public transport system is very well developed here. Trams and buses work from early in the morning until midnight. After midnight you will see special night buses on main streets of the city.
2. Taxis are rather cheap in Vienna, but "catching" it on the streets of the city is simply impossible. It is better to call a car to a restaurant or a hotel. You can also take a taxi in one of special sites.
3. The majority of shops and shopping centers are open until 18:00. Shops located near railway stations work until 23:00.

4. Tobacco products can be purchased in special stores and kiosks only.

5. Leaving tips in local restaurants is customary. The usual size of tips is 5 - 10% of the total bill. Leaving tips in summer cafes and small restaurants is not necessary. You can also leave a monetary reward to taxi drivers and hotel employees, which should be not less than 1.5 Euros.
6. Anyone can rent a car in Vienna. For this purpose it is enough to have a credit card by any bank and an international driver's license. A person, who rents a car, should be at least 21 years old; some brands of cars are allowed for rent only to persons aged 23 or older.

7. Banks are the best place to exchange currency as they usually offer the most favorable rate. On Thursdays the majority of banks have reduced working hours, so they are closed for an hour and a half earlier than usual.
8. Tourists, who are used to save on accommodations, are recommended to visit Vienna during the period from July to September. At this time of a year special campuses named Studentenheim are opened in the city. Here guests will be provided with not only comfortable accommodations, but also with low-cost food – there is a special dining named Mensa on the territory of each campus.
