We'll have a few hours to layover in Copenhagen and I have read conflicting info on the use of cash and credit cards in the city.
I spoke to my cc companies; neither US company seems to have a true chip and pin setup--apparently we use a chip and signature setup in the US, so their pin is only useful for cash advances at an ATM . . . This means that while the cards will work fine with most merchants, I have been told that I should not count on my US cards working for automated train ticket machines (and perhaps the lockers where we'll store our bags?).
I'm guessing to save time and hassle during the layover, I should secure some DKK at home before traveling? Maybe about $75 worth to cover trains and incidentals for a long afternoon (and make up the rest with credit card purchases)?
Does anyone know if my bank atm/ debit card might work using it's pin--probably not different than a cc; but maybe?
Thanks for any insights
