With a weakened America, the other countries are no longer willing to accomodate our “American exceptions”.
I just come back from France and indeed, you can’t use your card for many things such as highway tolls or parking payments… If most businesses have devices able to use both type of cards, I noticed that quite a few small businesses have newer credit card devices that only accept smart cards. You do need to carry cash on you at all time. Also, I encountered some difficulties exchanging $100 bills. You may want to change your currency in the US.

I can’t believe that Visa a US company uses smart cards in Australia but not in the US?

For that reason, Americans have, for generations looked down on others, as “foreigners,” even when we are in their country. In actuality, we are the one who are behind the curve in technology and many other things.
