  I find this absolutely astonishing.  I hope you will not demand lower prices
  because of your backward culture.  :)

  Norway may be highly advanced compared to other European countries, but both
  VISA and MasterCard are really big over here.  Banks offer debit and credit
  cards that fit different credit ratings and other profiles.  Other companies
  have agreements with credit card companies to offer their most preferred
  customers major credit cards.  My preferred airline actually picks up my
  annual credit card fees and offer free travel insurance when I pay for the
  tickets with the credit card.  I have come to rely so much on my credit card
  that I do not leave home without it.
