Fuel and Tolls in France, Italy, Germany, and Austria

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to anticipate cash versus credit card usage on the road in France, Germany, Austria, and Italy. From what I've read, I shouldn't expect to be able to "pay at the pump" in France, at least, because their system is set up for credit cards with a computer chip we don't have.

How about when there is an attendant? Can one use an American credit card or should I plan to have cash for all gas purchases? Are gas stations with attendants still pretty available (as opposed to automated)?

I have a similar question regarding tolls. Cash only? or credit card?

I know I'm asking about a very broad geographical range, but I didn't want to post the same question over and over for each country.

Thanks for whatever info you might have!
