Bank, payment in Norway

Banks / Payment


Most banks in Oslo are open from 09.00 to around 15.30 on weekdays and closed on Saturdays and Sundays. Some banks are open until 17.00 on Thursdays.

Credit cards

Visa, Eurocard, MasterCard, Diners Club and American Express are widely accepted cards in Norway, but do note that some supermarkets and petrol stations do not accept credit cards.

Travellers’ cheques

Travellers’ cheques should be bought before departure.
You can cash your travellers’ cheque in an exchange bureau (Oslo Visitor Centre does not change travellers' cheques).
Travellers’ cheques are generally not accepted in stores.


There are not many ATMs in the streets in Oslo, so they can be hard to find. There are often ATMs inside small convenience stores such as 7-Eleven or Narvesen; look for a sign that says 'MINIBANK'. You will also find them at the airport and in major train stations.
