I was hoping to get some currency exchange with reasonable rates close to central station, unfortunately my credit card charges too much foreign transaction fees and do not have time to get a better card.
I was wondering is someone can tell me good place for currency exchange close to central station? I expect you will get a better deal overall by using a credit card in an ATM machine including the charges, because the ATM will give you a much better exchange rate.
You can check the exchange rate at the ATMs in the arrivals hall at Oslo airport without withdrawing any money and compare it with the rate at the currency exchange counter right next to them.
If you know what your card charges are you can work which is the better deal. Even if your bank charges you a fee for cash withdrawal abroad, it may still be cheaper than exchanging cash at bad rates. Here you can find the exchange rates of the main exchange company http: The cheapest deal is to pay for everything with credit card, then you avoid the charge for cash.
If you've got a Visa-card you can get the actual convertion rates used here: Compare those adding the fees for use abroad to the rates at the forex. Thanks for the helpful responses, I will look at my bank atm fees, that maybe the best way to go for me.
It might be wiser to either withdraw money from ATM using debit card which is usually cheaper than Credit Card and you can confirm rates from your bank, or exchange money at Nordea a Norwegian bank exchange counters just outside Flytoget platforms on Oslo S station.
If there are fixed charges for cash withdrawals then it makes sense to take out one large amount rather than several small ones. The chances of having cash stolen in Norway are extremely low unless you are very careless.
