Credit Cards in Sweden

It is advisable to always carry at least one widely-used credit card such as Visa or MasterCard (or a card with the Maestro logo on it). Please do not forget your PIN code, you will need it. Credit cards are widely used even for smaller amounts. Indeed, Sweden is trying to eliminate cash as much as possible – for security and tax reasons. Some restaurants, shops and museums no longer accept cash. In fact, many Swedes rarely even carry cash.
