And credit cards is commonly used almost everywhere so maybe you can avoid carrying so much cash. Look for any credit cards with low or no transaction fees. All cards will match the best exchange rate when the purchases post to the account. For example, in the U. Capital One cards have no transaction fees, I think they're the last one to do that over here.
It is a much more reasonable way to exchange monies. I would just use my card and use it to pay whereever I go. I have a debitcard, directly connected with my bank accound, I don't know how it works for you at home. I seldom use cash. You really don't need to walk around with a huge amount of cash nowadays.
Guide book says that credit cards may not work in those small villages, not to mention about ATM. The locals have to use the ATMs too, so it would surprise me if they didn't work! Even the people in Lappland have jobs, salaries, bills, grocery shops and banks!
You could use either of them. Both will have the same exchange rates and the one at the central station shouldn't be more unsafe then the one at the airport. Just follow your normal safety precautions i. Enjoy your stay in northen Sweden!
