Customs of the krona
The krona has been Sweden’s currency for nearly 150 years. Each krona consists of 100 öre, however there are no longer any coins or notes in any denominations of öre – the smallest value you will find in legal tender is 1 krona.
Tipping in restaurants is not as expected in Sweden as it is in other European countries, so don’t worry about leaving a tip unless your service was exceptional, in which case 5-10% is customary. In bars and taxis, the typical approach is one of ‘keep the change’.
Frequently used banknotes
The five main banknotes are for 20, 50, 100, 500, and 1000 krona bills. The people portrayed on the 2015 versions of the bills include Greta Garbo (100), Ingmar Bergman (200) and Birgit Nilsson (500).

It is easy!
I have bought US dollars on a debit card for several years. This was my first attempt to buy online. It was easy. I know the card works wee in USA and Canada. Much easier than using a credit card and facing a big bill after a holiday.Dodie

Ordered card and cash online through these guys. Usually takes 5 days. Got notification the following day was ready to collect. Picked up from Werribbee Plaza outlet. Those guys were amazing. Knowledgable and helpful. I wanted a range of cash denominations and they were only too happy to oblige. You also get a better rate through these guys than any bank.Dora the Explorer
