I will be traveling to Europe and have a US based credit card in USD. When I pay I am aware of the following:
- Exchange Rate (Look up Visa/MC Website for their exchange rate)
- Foreign Transaction Fee (In my case there is none)
- If the POS Terminal asks if I want to pay in € or $ I choose € to get the exchange rate from Visa/MC.
- Cash is always a good idea but this part is covered.
Is there anything else I have to look out for when I pay with my US based credit card abroad?
