The best day trips from Belgrade, Serbia

Rent a car

Instead of global rent a car brands, the list includes only local companies through which you can rent better vehicles and at better prices.

Taxi services

The list includes the best taxi companies in Belgrade. You can order a taxi by phone or via the mobile app. Avoid stopping taxis on the street, especially if there is no taxi sign of one of the mentioned taxi companies. The TX mark at the end of the license plate proves that it is a regular taxi, but there is no guarantee that you will not be deceived.

As for airport transfers, it is best to schedule them in advance at a fixed price and thus avoid all possible inconveniences.

Public transportation

Belgrade has no metro. Buses, trolleybuses, and trams are at your disposal.
You can install the app with a line map and timetables. You can buy a bus pass in any street store.


In Serbia, the official currency is the Serbian dinar (RSD). 1 US dollar is worth about 100 dinars, and 1 euro is worth about 118 dinars. Officially, payment in foreign currency is not allowed, but in most restaurants, cafes, taxis, .etc, employees will accept the euro. But it is best to replace your currency with dinars in one of the exchange offices that you can find on almost every corner.

Banks usually have a slightly less favorable exchange rate, as do exchange offices at the airport and other important locations. Of course, to avoid getting entangled with the local currency, it may be best to pay with a Visa, MasterCard, or Maestro card whenever possible. You can even pay for your airport transfer by card.

SIM cards

There is no need for roaming in Serbia using SIM cards from the country you come from. You can easily buy a Serbian SIM card at any street store or gas station without any procedure. And they are quite cheap with the already included free credit for calls, text messages and the Internet.

Choose a physical or virtual SIM card from any of the three leading operators, and you will be able to make cheap calls and use the Internet without constantly asking for free WIFI:

  • MTS – Telekom Srbija (we recommend super tourist sim through which roaming is much more affordable)
  • Telenor
  • A1

Safety recommendations

Belgrade is a pretty safe city even when it comes to dark side streets at night. But be careful at night if you are near the central Belgrade bus station, which migrants surround from Asia and Africa. Also, foreign tourists are often the target of pickpockets in public transport.

However, the biggest danger is large groups of football fans who gather before important matches, mainly near the stadiums. Of course, they are easy to spot, so you can easily avoid them.


Emergency phone numbers

  • Police 192
  • Ambulance 194
  • Firefighters 193


If you use a car rental in Belgrade, it is important to be informed about how parking works in the wider center of Belgrade. At marked public parking lots (green, yellow, red, and purple zone), parking is paid via SMS or via a mobile app, so it is best to have a Serbian SIM card. Parking in public garages is paid for at a vending machine in the garage itself or from an employee who works there.

  • Green Zone – parking for a maximum of 3 hours, price 41 RSD per started hour
  • Yellow Zone – parking for a maximum of 2 hours, price 48 RSD per started hour
  • Red Zone – parking for a maximum of 1 hour, price 56 RSD
