Credit Card Fraud: Portable credit card terminals - Italy Restaurants

Jump to last reply

Hi, thanks again for all your help in my other threads for May 2016 Italy/Switz trip.

In Italy restaurants, (cities or towns) are handheld portable POS or point-of-sale credit card terminals or readers COMMONLY used? The handheld card reader waiter will bring to the table, so your card is not out of sight from you?

I have the usual popular travel credit card with CHIP-Signature. Chase. Sapp Preferred, etc. My past 3 trips from 2013 to 2015 to France and Spain, ALL the restaurants from Michelin and tavernas and beach shacks, have portable hand-held credit card terminal they brought to the table.

Now what should I expect in Italy? Places I'll be: Rome, Milan, Positano, Capri, Amalfi, Ravello, Lakes District and surrounding towns (Bellagio, Stresa, Varenna etc) I will be Lugano Switz too and will have lunch and would rather pay with credit card for lunch.
