Discover Cards accepted in Europe?

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I will be traveling across Europe this summer -- primarily the UK and France. We had planned on using our Discover Cards rather than our Visa or Mastercards because of the cash-back bonus and also, Discover has given us better conversion rates. However, we have heard from several people that Discover is not widely accepted in the UK and we may have trouble finding places that will take it. Has anyone found this to be the case before? I'd hate to find ourselves over there when our cards either don't work or won't be accepted. (Although, we will be taking backup cards!)
Many thanks,
Heather
