Debit/Credit Cards in Turkey

Jump to last reply

I contacted my bank today to ask about using my debit card to charge a hotel in Turkey for Sept. They said due to recent fraudulent activity, the charge would be denied and that the card was not valid in Turkey. This is a separate account I opened just for travel because they don't have additonal fees.

I then contacted Capital One and gave them the name of the hotel, the dates and the city. They said they could not guarantee that the credit card would go through. Said "try it and if denied call us". I asked about using it as a debit card while there and what the fees would be. The rep said fees are nominal and whatever the bank at that end charged, but Capital one did not have an added fee.

It makes me very nervous that I could get there and all cards could be denied. A couple of questions:

1. Is there another credit/debit card I should acquire that is guaranteed to work in Turkey?
2. Has anyone used Capital One credit card as a debit card and if so, were the added fees nominal?

Thanks
