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?)?

Bars/pubs?

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.
