I'm travelling to Oslo in a couple of days and, living in Argentina , I'm having troubles trying to find NOKs over here. I've seen a couple of posts talking about forex, but I really dont understand the system. First I thought it was be an online bank, but I've seen that it has branch offices in Oslo. Can anyone explainme how it works?
Do I have to open an account previously? I know that ATMs has the best exchange rates, but here we have a lot of restrictions for debit cards, so our accounts get automatically blocked when you are abroad. I mean, they only let you to pick up up to approx. USD per day, so its really disadvantageous for me as i'm planning to stay for 2months and I'll have to do a lot of transactions with the additional charges and recharges.
Have you tried to ask your bank for rising your allowances on your card while abroad? I know that this works for US citizens who have some of the same problems when going aboad mostly because US banks tend to think that withdrawals abroad will be a forgery. Forex is an international money transfer and exchange company, and you don't need any account to use them.
Also worth looking into: Are the restrictions for withdrawals only or also for paying by card. Cards are widely accepted as payment method and you really do not need a lot of cash. And I would try to carry as little cash as possible for security reasons. There are also restrictions on how much cash you can take out of or bring into a country, although I do not know the details.
