The Faroe Islands uses the Danish Krone (DKK) as its currency. Danish banknotes and coins are in circulation, plus Faroese banknotes of equivalent value. It is sensible to change any Faroese banknotes before leaving the islands as they may be difficult to exchange elsewhere. There are several ATMs within the centre of Torshavn, though very few elsewhere. Credit cards are widely accepted at larger shops, petrol stations, etc.
