Cards

If you want to know what it will cost to use your card to pay an amount in a European currency other than Danish kroner, you can use our Cost calculator.. 

Debit and credit cards are an important element of our full-service concept. A debit card is linked to your personal bank account, while a credit card allows you to have extra money available at all times. Our new generation of credit cards also function as debit cards. The cards are all easy and safe to use, also for contactless payment, and can be managed through Danske eBanking. Danske Bank bases its card offering to you on an individual assessment of your financial position. Order your card through eBanking or by calling us on +45 70 123 456.

The EU Cross-Border Payments regulation requires all banks to inform their customers of the charges they pay when they use their cards to make payments in another currency in the EU and in Norway, Lichtenstein and Iceland (the EEA countries). The regulation aims to ensure greater transparency for customers on certain charges for card transactions in the European Economic Area (EEA).

  • Who receives a text message?

    You will receive a message if you have a credit card, a debit card or a corporate card with personal liability and we have your mobile phone number. You can always register or update your mobile phone number via Danske Mobile Banking or Danske eBanking.

    Parents of a child under the age of 18 will also receive a text message when the child’s card is used for payments.

  • Why do you get a text message?

    Danske Bank is required to inform you about our mark-up when you use your card abroad to make a payment in an EEA* currency.
  • What does the message contain?

    The text message contains information about the mark-up you pay to us when you make a payment in an EEA* currency. The mark-up is stated as the percentage mark-up over the European Central Bank (ECB) reference rate.

  • Why can there be a difference between the mark-up stated in the text message and that stated in the price list?

    The ECB rate is a reference rate and not the rate used by Danske Bank for card transactions.

    We use MasterCard and Visa rates for conversion of card payments (depending on the card you use), and you may therefore find that there is a small difference between the mark-up stated in our text message and the mark-up stated in our price list. There are no changes to fees and charges.

    Please note that exchange rates change on an ongoing basis, so the rate may have changed when your payment is booked.

  • When will you receive a text message?

    You will receive a text message the first time you use your card to make a payment (at a physical point of sale or online) or an ATM withdrawal in an EEA currency other than the currency of the card account.

    Once you have received the first text message, you will not receive additional messages over the next 30 days if you make further payments or ATM withdrawals in the same currency using the same card.

    You will receive the text message as soon as Danske Bank has approved the transaction. If you have the option of paying in Danish kroner or the local currency, and you choose Danish kroner, you will not receive a text message from Danske Bank. If you pay in Danish kroner, the payment recipient/ATM owner will do the currency conversion, and you may have pay a higher exchange rate mark-up.

  • Can I unsubscribe for these text messages?

    Yes, you can stop receiving the text messages by sending a text message with the text “STOPCCY” to 3326.

    If you opt out of receiving the text messages, this applies to all cards issued to you by Danske Bank.

    You can always re-register for the service by sending a text message with the text "STARTCCY" to 3326.
