I am in Europe now, have used my CC in Italy, Switzerland, France, and Germany and have yet to be asked for a pin...the old swiped card has been accepted everywhere.

As to ATM use...some people will spend a billion to save 20 cents.

Spend a billion! Where? How? Will they charge you to transfer out your money?

If you do your banking at a credit union, no need to ever spend a billion or even a million. They're non-profit. I do almost all my banking online, pay my bills online, have rarely been in a credit union office. So I spend very little on gas also. Or stamps.

Oh, by the way, you can do automatic deposits in a credit union account, no problem.

Foreign transaction fees (FTF) depend on your specific card. There is a BoA card (see http://promotions.bankofamerica.com/...mericard/)with zero FTF, but it requires a $70/year fee unless you have a substantial account at BoA or Merrill Lynch. The card has a chip-and-pin, so is very handy in Europe. BoA has agreements with Deutsch Bank, BNP Paribus, Scotia Bank and Barclays (plus one Asian bank, Westpac). These agreements only apply in the HOME COUNTRY, and allow zero swipe fees IN THE HOME COUNTRY, e.g., BNP Paribus in France only.

However, it used to be that the fee was charged when withdrawing from a partner bank outside its original jurisdiction. In other words, withdrawing from a
Deutsche Bank ATM outside Germany would incur the $5 charge. One needs to check to see if this rule still applies.
