Default Thread Title:  US travelers warning: Your credit cards might not work in Estonia

Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams and the "Travel with Stephanie Abrams!" Radio Show welcome Jon Dario, President of Travelex Currency Services to the June 12, 2011 broadcast.

American credit cards use a magnetic strip, but newer Eurozone credit cards use a Chip and Pin technology. There is an embedded micro chip and a numeric pin that are used in concert with newer style merchant/teller machines.

Your US credit cards might not work! Many merchants have upgraded their equipment and don't have a mechanism to use US cards.

Consider the Travelex Cash Passport for a pre-paid debit style Mastercard loaded with Euro's that uses the chip and pin technology before leaving the states.
