American credit cards work throughout Europe (at hotels, larger shops and restaurants, travel agencies, car-rental agencies, and so on); Visa and MasterCard are the most widely accepted. American Express is less common, and the Discover card is unknown in Europe.

Why isn’t Amex accepted everywhere

Answered By: Morgan Peterson Date: created: Dec 02 2021

All credit card issuers charge a fee, but not all issuers charge the same fee. Because of this set up, merchants can choose which credit cards they want to accept. The different fees often make or break a deal for a merchant. This is why many merchants, especially small businesses, don’t accept American Express.

Why is discover not accepted everywhere

Answered By: Jonathan Patterson Date: created: Mar 01 2021

Why isn’t Discover as widely accepted as Visa or Mastercard? There’s about one-seventh the number of Discover cards as Visa cards, so merchants may not have as much of an incentive to accept them. Discover sometimes charges merchants more for card acceptance than either Visa or Mastercard.

Is it cheaper to use credit card abroad or cash

Answered By: Cameron Washington Date: created: Mar 29 2021

Local cash is normally the easiest way to pay abroad. However, you’ll need to shop around for a good exchange rate. Unless they’re designed for travellers, credit cards and debit cards are usually expensive to use abroad. Avoid withdrawing money with a credit card, as this can attract steep fees and interest.

How much cash should you carry in Europe

Answered By: Adrian Allen Date: created: Oct 03 2021

If you’re in a similar situation, I’d recommend visiting the ATM every few days (or as needed) to take out 100 euros (or 200 as needed) to minimize how much you’re carrying on you. If you have higher fees, I’d limit your cash to 300 euros at one time.

Should I exchange money before I travel to Europe

Answered By: Louis White Date: created: Feb 21 2021

Avoid (or at least minimize) cash exchange.

In general, I avoid exchanging money in Europe; it’s a big rip-off. On average, at a bank you lose about 8 percent when you change dollars to euros or another foreign currency. A good rule of thumb: The difference between the buy and sell rates should be less than 10 percent.

Where is Discover accepted in UK

Answered By: Bernard Brooks Date: created: Jul 21 2021

The Discover Card website does list the UK as somewhere Discover is accepted (https:/…europe.). It looks like you can use a Discover Card to get cash at any LINK ATM (pretty much all UK ATMs are part of the LINK network), but that would involve paying whatever cash advance fees and interest rates are applicable.

How many credit cards should I have

Answered By: James Moore Date: created: Feb 09 2021

The short answer: you should have at least two – ideally each from a different network (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, etc.) and each offering you a different kind of rewards (cash back, miles, rewards points, etc.). How many credit cards is too many?

Is Discover a Visa or MasterCard

Answered By: Evan White Date: created: Feb 21 2021

Discover is neither a Visa nor a Mastercard. It’s more like an American Express card, but they’re not exactly the same, either. Discover is similar to Visa, Mastercard and American Express in the sense that all four are card networks.
