Thanks for the info on the airport ATM, I assume simple American debit card which is fee favorable or were you doing cash advances off a credit card which I guess might make sense as a use case in this niche?


My father was away for a week at a time for work even before I was born.  But it was a different time when women were more willing to accommodate. 

 

I use atm/debit cards.  I have/had Schwab, JPM or Citigold so all fees are waived.  There are Citibank branches in some European cities -- I know of London and Rome for Citi and Paris for Chase/JPM.  I regularly arrive at foreign countries with less than $100 in my pocket.  It really depends on how out of the way they are, but I would guess as this is work related, you wouldn't be going into isolated locations.

Correct.  Even as a stupid American I can point to where all the locations are on a globe, so I'm thinking will be fine.  Will see about picking up a feeless debit card, appreciate the heads up!

Re: How Many Credit Cards do you bring with you at all time?

My Secured Card has been SD for the past few months now, and I just SD my Amex starting this month..

 

I'm losing interest on my AMEX BCE, no growth.. Been asking CLI every month and always decline.

 

Will decide the faith of my Citi Secured this Fall.

Re: How Many Credit Cards do you bring with you at all time?

As of late I carry three: Chase FU, Citi DC, and Discover.  As such I have three different rewards programs, three different issuers, and three different networks covered.
