Paying and making reservations with Credit Visa/Debit Cards

Jump to last reply

Howdy all-it's been a while!

I'm about to make a reservation at ALBERGO GIUSTI Suore di Sant' Anna Convent in Rome, Italy and they're requesting I fill out a wrod documnet form with my credit card info on it. I'm going to use my Debit card that has the Visa stamp on it and can be run as credit. But I'm wondering if I'm going to get charged by anyone. I think Visa charges a 1% or 10% on the dollar for foreign transactions and My bank doesn't charge anything.
Has anyone had any esperience witht he merchant charging a fee for using American Visa?
I'm leery to pass out my card number. The hotel has good reports on Tripadvisor, so I know it really does exsist :)
I just need a little aadvise on foreign transactions...

Thanks!
