The one thing you can be absolutely sure about in Banja Luka is that there is no possibility of getting caught in a tourist trap. They hardly know what a tourist is. The city does see a high proportion of visitors associated with NGOs, charities, etc, but Bosnian traditions and culture seem to be little diluted by foreign influence.
English and French speaking travellers will certainly know they have arrived in a different country. Their languages are not usually anyone's second language and sometimes not the third, or even fourth. But most schoolkids, if not their parents, will know enough to get you by.
As far as I am aware, neither Banja Luka nor anywhere else in the Serb Republic has either a Macdonalds or a Starbucks. It's worth the journey for that alone.

Credit cards are not widely accpeted at stores, and there is only one ATM set in the city. However, you can get cash advance with your credit and debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro) at any of these banks: Zagrebacka banka, Raiffaisen bank, and Nova banka.
