Discover Card

Is Discover card generally accepted in NZ and Australia or should I stick with Mastercard? Any help will be much appreciated.

I have never even heard of a Discover Card so can only assume that it is not well accepted in Austraia if at all. From the way you worded the question I assume it is an alternate to Mastercard/Visa. Mastercard and Visa are everywhere.

I don't remember seeing anywhere in NZ that accepted Discover Card. We left ours home.

What about American Express, while we are on the subject? (Not that I use it much, but just curious).

In Australia Amex is accepted fairly widely - more commonly than Diners Card (no surprise there) but not as widely as Visa and Mastercard.

I have never heard of a Discover card. Your best bet in New Zealand is Visa, MasterCard or American Express. The first two would be the best.
Have fun,

I didn't take my Discover Card on my recent trip to AU-- and it was a good thing, as I never did see a sign anywhere in the country for a place that accepted it. Mastercard for me.
