Dankort is the most commonly used payment card in Denmark and will be issued to you by your bank. You can use Dankort all over Denmark to pay for purchases - also on the internet. With a Dankort you can withdraw up to DKK 2,000 kroner a day from other banks or ATMs other than your own bank's.
Dankort is a debit card where the money is debited, or deducted, from your account immediately after you have made your purchase.
You can also get Dankort as a combined Visa/Dankort. The card works as a Dankort within Denmark and as a Visa card abroad, where Visa is a generally accepted means of payment.
There are certain set spending limits on a Visa/Dankort when using the Visa element. You can withdraw a cash amount in local currency corresponding to DKK 2,000 every 24 hours, Danish time. In certain cases local rules may set further restrictions on this amount.
Furthermore, you can use a maximum of DKK 20,000 per invoice month on the Visa element of the card. This limit also applies to foreign websites.

Dankort with chip & PIN is safest

Dankort and VISA/Dankort with chip & PIN have replaced the old magnetic stripe cards and give you far better protection against card fraud and copying. The Dankort with chip & PIN works in exactly the same way as the old card. The card has no engraved photo and signature, so you must sign your card on receipt.
