Money and Tipping

Denmark's currency is the Danish Krone (DKK). Tourist-friendly shops may take Euros. Credit cards are accepted at a lot of places but most self-serve terminals require chip and pin cards. Ask before trying to use a magnetic swipe card. There may also be a 3% surcharge for using foreign credit cards. In Europe, it is common (but not expected) to round up the bill leaving a small tip (5-10%) when dining at restaurants. Taxi drivers do not expect to be tipped though passengers typically round up to the nearest 10 DKK.

Local Transportation

Torshavn is a small city and easily walkable. Local buses are free if you want to explore further out from the city. Bus routes and schedule available from the city's website http://www.torshavn.fo
