Chip & PIN - Alternative to Andrews

Jump to last reply

About a year and a half ago I went thru the arduous process of applying for an Andrews Globe Trekker credit card.

I used it without incident in Provence and Paris. Where ever a swipe card is accepted the card defaults to that. Otherwise I just entered the PIN.

I just returned from Italy yesterday evening and had a very different result.

In train stations I used the Andrews card and it just went thru. I never had to enter a PIN.

However, in a few places where a PIN was required (such as a vending machine to buy vaporetto tickets) the PIN was rejected and I had to use cash.

In the past year or so has anybody come across other good chip and PIN cards?

Thanks.
