Are merchants less likely to accept a credit card in Germany

Jump to last reply

In several trip reports on Fodors and another site I remember reading that travelers found merchants reluctant to accept credit cards in Germany for meals and excursions purchases.

When we travel in Europe we prefer to use our Visa and Mastercard from Capital One as much as possible. We use cash for most purchases under 20 euros but like the convenience of not carrying too much cash at any one time. We also like to use our credit card statement as documentation of our travels

This will be our first stay in Germany and I'd like to know , in general, if we should expect our credit cards to be accepted by merchants less often than in other European countries.

Thanks for any comments, Deborah
