Default Re: Credit Card and ATM

Hi Wes,

The ATMs work well overseas and are readily available in the tourist areas, but you need to make sure before you go that you have a 4-digit PIN because the others won't work over there. As previously noted, the currency that you will receive will be the currency for that country (mostly Euros except in the Baltic countries). You have probably seen the segments on the 20/20 type news programs about those plastic devices that can be slipped into the ATM card openings to make you think the ATM ate your card and then the thieves retrieve your card to use it (happens in the U.S. too), so make sure to cover your hand when you use your PIN. You know, just the normal precautions you would take in any city in the U.S.

Happy cruising,
Donna
