I would say we are definitely headed in that direction, and it is probably not as far down the road as one may think.

I use cash exclusively, so I hope not. I think it is headed that way though.

I think we will become a cash-less society - the pandemic has pushed us further into this - but I find I need cash for some things, for example, paying the gardener and the window cleaner and my grandchildren’s birthday money. I confess I am a cash person.

I have lived ‘almost’ cashless for a few years (only window cleaner etc) so it wouldn’t bother or affect me personally.
Family money gifts I send direct to bank accounts.

Also I have to use trains and buses to go to work up the city and swipe my credit card on even on the bus !
But I don’t envisage that the UK will ever become a completely cashless society, no.

Butterfly.......hmmm it seems like we're heading that way but personally I like cash. Remember the good ol' days when we were able to go shopping down/up the high street ??......giggles.:)...well if I wanted to buy a cuppa I would use cash (money that you can feel hehe) as it was such a small amount. In Norway they charge you every time you use your card........so can you magine all those teeny weeny small amounts would cost you more in the long run....

I am still a cash person - but more and more people are not using cash at all.

They have a physical card and /or a card on their phone - and that is all they use..

Yes I think one day we will be a totally cashless society, but not for a long time yet.
Many of us here will likely never see this happen, imo.
