The official currency in Greenland is the Danish krone - abbreviated to the currency code DKK. 1 Krone is subdivided into 100 øre.

There was a plan for a Greenlandic krone, but these plans were abandoned in 2009. The Greenlandic krone would have been a localised version of the Danish krone, rather than an independent currency.

The former currency of Greenland was the rigsdaler, however this was replaced in 1874 by the kroner. The Danmarks Nationalbank issues all currency in Greenland.

Great to be able to go back blind

Great to be able to go back blind, order what I want and then pick it up. The teller at Travelex was professional and encouraged my daughter to help count.

The money was ready on day I asked for it.

The money was ready on the day I had requested to pickup. The cashier counted the money and it was short by 500. He got the extra 500 from the rear and recounted the amount, which now was correct. Service with a smile.

I have been trying to load money on my card for 3 days unsuccessfully and was not helped by customer service. Today the kind customer service lady went through the form I was filling in with me on the phone and discovered the agent who initially filled in the card for me at the local agency had my name wrong. My name has two words with a space between and she put the first syllable as my middle name and the second as the last name. Using her info I am now able to load money and I am very grateful to the lady who was so patient and discovered the problem.

Our flights were great with the crew…

Our flights were great with the crew being pro active with providing juices and water. The food was lovely. Our only complaint was the check in staff at Hong Kong Airport . They seemed to be late and did not seem interested in their jobs or clients. There was a long queue for economy with 1 person checking in with staff 3 staff at first class business and premium economy talking with each other instead of maybe taking 1 or 2 economy. It was more there lack of interest which stood out. I would still fly with Singapore Airlines as this did not definitely reflect the crew on board and the check in staff at all other airports were very helpful , courteous and friendly.
