Q: I'm arriving in Reykjavik next Wednesday morning for a one-week visit. The hostess of my guest house asks to be paid in full, in cash, when I check in. I need ISK 84,000 for her. Can I get that much from an ATM, or do I need to find an open bank?
Thank you very much!
A: I’m afraid you would have to find an open bank, as holders of non-bank affiliated cards in Iceland can only withdraw ISK 50,000 per 24 hours. There is a bank at Keflavík International Airport on the 1st floor near the arrival center which is open from 5:30 am to 5 pm as well as from 9 pm to 2 am every day.
