  •  US cards use old technology (1+ / 0-)

    radical simplicity

    US cards still use magnetic strip technology which is not secure. At Schiphol airport I tried to buy a train ticket with my US Visa card but was told that cards with magnetic strips are no longer accepted. Only cards with embedded chips can be used. So carry some cash with you in Europe if you have a US Visa or MC card.
