Be aware of currency conversion fees: Your bank’s DKK to GBP exchange rate may not be so good. This is how banks make money.

Tipping is not expected in Denmark. Danish law states that a service charge is not allowed to be added to your bill: The cost of service has to be included in the price of the items on the bill.
