When traveling, situations arise where you would like to use a credit card and do without cash, or a credit card is required as security for a booking. In addition to the advantage of always having the appropriate currency, the amounts are not debited directly from your bank account. You will receive a bill, which you can check in detail for accuracy. Many credit cards also include useful travel insurance.
In foreign countries, payment by credit card is often required for security reasons in order to avoid large amounts of cash. At the same time, it is safer for travelers to carry little cash with them. Your credit card not only solves the currency problem, but also makes the payment process simple and convenient. In the event of discrepancies, you also have the option of contesting charges after you have been billed without assuming liability – provided you comply with the general obligation of exercising due diligence.
