BEFORE YOU CHARGE OVERSEAS…
When traveling abroad, it is wise to carry a credit card. However, many US cards have a magnetic stripe, but these are technologically passé. Many foreign merchants use smart cards with a chip. Some require a personal identification number to work; others just a signature. You may have problems abroad using a magstrip card such as we use in the USA, so apply for a Chip and Pin MasterCard through USAA online. Chip and Pin cards are the most secure cards to use. A thief would have to be as close as 4 inches away to grab the signal from this card. And if the chip is breached, the information is heavily encrypted. In searching for the right card for you, check to find out (1) if there’s an annual fee for the card; (2) if it charges a foreign transaction fee; and (3) if it’s a credit or cash advance card such as an ATM card.
