Charge on purchases in Denmark


Up until now, Danish shops and online businesses have made a charge when paying with non-Danish debit and credit cards. After criticism from the EU commission, the Danish government has had to change the rules. This doesn’t mean that it’s free to use your card though. There will be a charge for cards provided by Danish banks too. The only exception is Dankort, the Danish equivalent to a debit card, which is linked to a current account in a Danish bank.

The government is worried that other cards will push Dankort out of the market, this is why they are protecting it. According to the Danish minister for business and economy Brian Mikkelsen, it helps business and online companies save on transaction costs.

In other words, Denmark continues to be a country where tourists should use cash.
