Using US Credit Cards in Spain

Jump to last reply

I have had so much fun struggling with the my bank and Spanish travel websites in getting them to take/approve my Visa or Mastercard. I plan on calling the banks just before my trip to tell them that any charges will be ok. What about American Express? Can I use that in Spain? I suppose I will call them, too.

We went to France in 2007 and had no problems with our credit cards being accepted. Has something changed?

Any other tips you can give me on being able to use credit cards in Spain, would be greatly appreciated. We want to use them to pay for meals or other purchases. When we were in France, we used the AmEx to get Euros from bank machines--can you do that in Spain or are we going to have to get a LOT of euros in advance? I am just a bit flummoxed here.
