A Danish credit card can come in handy.
Getting a Danish credit card is a good idea if you’re planning on living in Denmark for an extended period of time. When you have a bank account, you get the card for free and there are no extra fees when you withdraw cash in a store or from an ATM. In Denmark, people often use Visa/Dankort and MasterCard; normally, your salary is directly deposited into your ban account.
Today, all new Visa Dankort are contactless. Meaning if the shop’s terminal has a contactless sign you can simply put the card next to the terminal and it will scan your card. If the amount it under 200DKK, you don’t have to type in your password, making shopping quick and easy.
What if I lose my credit card?
If you lose your credit card, you should either sign-in to your netbank and block the card or call your bank as soon as possible. The faster you block your card, the bigger the chances are that the bank can fix the problem and transfer back any funds which were lost.
To get a new card you can either order one online or directly from your bank – the cost varies, but is generally 100 – 150 DKK. Once ordered, the credit card will be sent to your registered address.
