The “old” people in the que (like me) with cash could pay for our shopping.
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.

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. ;-)

No as I usually use NFC contactless on my phone or watch and I always have one or the other.

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 people
Excellent 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.

Ha ha- very good point!I too am quite old school as I usually pay for shopping etc in cash. If I go to any EU country I would always have euros,however I've never been to Norway so have no idea of the cost of things( I know it's expensive though!!),so on this occasion I'd rather not come home with Krone that I'd probably not use again.

Many thanks for all your replies,help and advice. We're off to Norway tomorrow- really excited and looking forward to some good weather!( fingers crossed)
