Using Credit Cards for Services

Jump to last reply

Here in the US you can pretty much use a credit card for everything. I've only run into a couple of small businesses (and some taxis) where cash is necessary.

How will I fare in Amsterdam, Belgium, and Luxembourg for things like:

Museum entry/museum cards?

Sit down restaurants?

Quick serve/fast food restaurants?

Train tickets (although, I've been reading that the machines won't take our US cards, but will the service desk take them?)?


Coffee shops in Amsterdam?

Retail establishments (i.e., chocolate shops, tourist stores, small businesses)?

Just trying to gauge how often I'll be needing to hit up the ATM.
