heading to Europe and I need advice for my credit and bank card
I will be heading down to Europe in May for a cruise and we are going to visit seven countries plus me and my mom are both heading to Paris, France for two days.
Right now, I have a BMO Mastercard and two President's Choice Financial bank cards. All three do not have chips on them, as I understand that most European countries have already transitioned to the chip system.
I need some advice on how can I handle situations in which a merchant doesn't accept my non-chip card for whatever reason. This similar instance reminded me of when a bus driver had refused my transit pass for so many reasons, which I can't explain it in detail (silly statement to ask, but I have to).
Anyways, if a merchant in Europe doesn't accept my credit card, who should I contact?
I was planning to apply for another credit card just for that trip, but I would like to offer you guys some advice you can give me - if you can. Thanks.
