A GREAT point. I call my credit card company prior to travel and have
them put a note on my file as to the destination and duration of
travel. Furthermore, I overpay my balance as well. That way, my credit
card ALSO becomes a debit card -- they can't charge interest on a
credit balance! This offers extra protection if something major was to
happen -- like a hospital stay.
Those that are exchanging CASH are carrying cash. Bad choice in my
view. Two credit cards, two debit cards and I am covered four ways --
unless I was to lose it all.
