Among other factors, you might want to consider the fees tacked on for foreign transactions. The total is a combination of fees from Visa/MC and from the card issuer, and is typically 3%. Capital One is the only issuer that I am aware of (though I suppose there are some others) who doesn't add their own fee, so the total on their card is only 1%. I got a Capital One Visa specifically for my last trip to Europe (last month) and it saved me plenty.
