I do use my card in certain circumstance, but only when I can watch the card being run.
Personally, I'd carry a bit of cash in small bills.
Thanks Kuki, I hadn't thought about that; I also like to watch my card being scanned. I don't plan to really buy much, just some cheap souvenirs, so perhaps I'll bring along a few ten's for that.
