There are exchange offices at Belgrade Airport and at both railway and coach stations in Novi Sad as well as at numerous other locations around the city. Cash may be withdrawn from ATMs installed at bank branch offices and other public places, including the Faculty of Philosophy.
The closest airport is in Belgrade, 70 km / 45 miles from Novi Sad. As there is no public transport from the airport to Novi Sad, the easiest way to get there is by taxi. Alternatively, you may go to the central coach or train station in Belgrade and take a coach or train to Novi Sad.
