Credit Card Saving Tips: Bring an Extensively Accepted Credit Card
MasterCard and Visa are widely accepted all over the world. If a business takes credit cards, it is a smart bet that your credit card will work. American Express has a worldwide presence, too. However, it’s accepted by a small number of mercantile. In case your primary credit card is an American Express, bring a MasterCard or Visa as your backup.
Discover is the least accepted credit card worldwide, so you may need to be indecisive on bringing one abroad. Though, there are exemptions. Like for instance in China, the state-controlled network Union Pay controls card acceptance, and a mutual deal permits cardholders to utilize Discover each time Union Pay is accepted. Always remember if you are traveling to various parts of China. In Japan, Tokyo is the #2 on the list- Discover has the same agreement with JCB, the primary credit card network.
