credit card smart chip

Jump to last reply

I just returned from a trip to France,Belgium and Amsterdam. While trying to purchase train tix at the station in Paris...my credit card was denied. After several more attempts..and asking a passerby for assistance.. we determined my credit card did not have the "standard in France" smart chip. Same thing (although I was expecting it)at the automatic gas pump. I was (am) surprised I didn't see more "warning" of this on this board before. I did a smart card search before posting this and only find a post or two. I didn't really make for much of a hassle...just wish I had known ahead of time.
