two years ago a atm machine in rome ate my debit card. I called the bank back in the USA and then used my wifes debit card for the rest of the trip. Our debit cards use two different numbers. I had to cancel mine. I did have my tour guide go into the bank where the atm machine was; he explained what happened and they said they could not get the card out. They did not have a key, they said that an outside company filled the machine with cash and they would be the ones who would have to get the card out. I told them they were wrong; because why would a bank have a third party load the cash, and recover lost cards. Anyway, like I mentioned, we just used my wife's card for the remainder of the trip to get cash from atm's. So in answer to your question: what do I do for backup. I would have to say; I carry my wife along.
