Currency For Norway

Recommended Posts

The currency is Norwegian Kroner. If you change from pounds to euros and then to kroner, you incur two transaction charges compared to changing straight from pounds to kroner. Whilst many places may accept euros, you will lose on the exchange. You can withdraw kroner from any ATM using a UK debit card.

Hi  Many tourist cafes/attractions/shops will accept Euros although any change will be given in Norwegian Kroner so it's a good idea to take small denomination notes.  Also credit cards are widely if not universally accepted.  I have only once not been able to use Euros and that was for the rack and pinion railway in Bergen but they take credit cards so it wasn't a problem.

My advice is to take some Norwegian Kronor with you in advance especially if you want to purchase small items or use public toilets. Would never use Euros because Norway is already very expensive in their own money using Euros the exchange rate will be in their advantage making it even moreso.

It is still the Kroner and as other forum members have already noted an expensive place to eat & drink out so just exchange the once, current ates are above 11 per pound so this has increased  quite a lot as it ued to be under 10 to the pound, have a great trip!!
