Good to know
I was in the supermarket a couple of days ago when someone tried to pay by card and it failed. So did the person after them. TSB major IT issue, it’s been all over the press.And I was in the supermarket recently and the person in front was paying for their shopping in cash. Only problem was they didn't have enough so they had the embarrassment of having to put some things back.
The “old” people in the que (like me) with cash could pay for our shopping.
Those of us behind paying by card had no problems.So you've never arrived at a checkout to find that your wallet with your cards in was still at home? I have. ;-)

I would agree. Cash is dead! We have been to Norway 3 or 4 times and never needed it. We now use a Revolut card which you load with cash and can use in any country at a good exchange rate with no fee. I’ve used it for very small amounts with no difficulty. We rarely ever bother with foreign currency nowadays. As our kids tell us, cash is for old peopleExcellent news. I'm an old person, so if you do find yourself with any of this worthless cash, send it on to me please and I will try and find a use for it.
