Get your money’s worth

The Norwegian currency is “Kroner”, which is sometimes mistranslated into “crowns” in English. But whatever we call our money, cash is no longer king in Norway, and almost all establishments accept debit cards.

It is still a good idea to have a bit of cash on you, though, and you need Norwegian currency to get by - foreign currency is rarely accepted.

You will find cash machines everywhere in towns and cities, and in most rural areas there will at least be one place where you can withdraw money, such as a kiosk or a petrol station.

Post offices and some grocery shops or supermarkets do not accept foreign credit cards, although they happily take debit cards.

Visa and MasterCard are the most commonly accepted credit cards, with far fewer accepting Amex or Diners. If in doubt, ask before shopping.
