    Norway money: paying in Norway

    How about paying in Norway? Are there ATMs just like us? What is the price level and what do you put down as a tip after stopping at a cozy terrace? On this page you will find everything about paying in Norway.

    Money

    Currency

    • Norwegian krone (NOK)

    Debit card

    • Debit cards (both debit and credit cards) are accepted almost everywhere.
    • Banks and credit companies provide information about the possibilities and costs of debit cards.

    Cash

    • Norway has plenty of ATMs (mini bank).
    • Current information about ATMs in a particular location can be found at, among others, mastercard.com/atmlocator and visa.com/atmlocator.
    • Banks, post offices and exchange offices exchange money. Hotels generally trade at a less favorable rate than banks.
    • Current information on banknotes and coins can be found at norges-bank.no/en.

    Tips

    • Bring a variety of payment methods and keep them separately: a bank card, a credit card and cash.
    • Using a bank card is usually cheaper than using a credit card. The costs differ per bank, per bank card and per credit card. If a fixed amount is charged per transaction, frequent use of a debit card for small amounts is not recommended.
    • There is usually a spending limit per day or per week for bank cards. The bank can increase the limit on request. Arrange this before you travel. With a credit card, you can increase the spending limit by transferring an extra amount to the credit card account or by requesting a higher credit from the bank or credit card company.
    • Have your debit card blocked immediately in case of loss or theft.

    Particularities

    • In Norway you can pay contactless with a telephone. Ask your bank for more information. Up-to-date information about paying with a mobile phone can also be found at support.apple.com/apple-pay and support.google.com/pay.

    Tips

    • If there is no service charge on the hotel or restaurant bill, a 5% tip is appreciated. It is customary to round the amount.
    • You can round the amount for taxi drivers.
