EMV and Pin & Chip Cards

When traveling abroad, you may encounter a situation where your credit card may not be accepted due to the fact that it just has a magnetic stripe. In some countries, as a extra layer of protection, a card with EMV compatability may be required. This technology, also commonly referred to as a smart or pin and chip card is widely accepted throughout Europe and parts of Asia. If planning a trip to foreign soil, in addition to looking for a card that does not charge foreign transaction fees, an offer with Smart Card technology is always a good idea.
