Foreign exchange and travellers’ cheques
Tromsø is far from a mass tourism destination, hence there are no private bureaux de changes. The only option is therefore to change money in the bank. Changing money inside the bank is considerably more expensive than using ATMs. The use of international credit cards is widespread in shops and restaurants, and all transactions take place right in front of you. It is therefore very safe. Most attractions, some shops and the Tourist Information Office except payment in Euro. The exchange rate might not be as good as the Banks, but there is no fee.
