I think it is unlikely (if not impossible) that you will be able to use the lost card to pay for your room. Most U.S. hotel/motel stays are post-paid. As such, you will customarily be asked for a payment method up to three times— at booking, at check-in, and at check-out— but you would only be charged at check-out or for a no-show. Usually, they ask me to ...

I have managed to talk to some people who travelled to Macedonia, including one from Denmark with MasterCard. Apparently, there should not be any issues using either Visa or MasterCard. In any case, it would still be advisable to have some euros with you just in case.

The conditions for the Charles Schwab card remain almost as good as indicated in @holden's answer from 2011. There are still no fees, and still total reimbursement of ATM fees. However, the fine print says that the conversion rate will be between 0.10% and 1.0% in their favor relative to some benchmark, depending on amount and currency. This is my primary ...

PassKit's answer is correct, but I wanted to add some more detail. First off, just to confirm, your ticket will still be valid, but you'll lose the extra bag and priority boarding. Those privileges only apply if you're an active Delta co-branded cardholder at the time of the flight. Delta's computers will be aware of whether you are an active cardholder or ...

BlueBird has some taxis with a poster saying "SHIA Airport Taxi", which stands for Soekarno Hatta International Airport. These ones usually do have a working credit card ...

As a rule, taxis in Jakarta do NOT accept credit cards, although there are a few exceptions. Some Blue Bird taxis do have credit card facilities, but always be sure to check before travelling that they are available/working. In general, you do not want to rely on them having such facilities are they are few and far between. If travelling from the airport, ...

I travelled from the CGK airport in Jakarta using Bluebird taxis. Be careful of drivers that are not reputable. At the airport, they did not have an office, from what I could see, and I wasn't aware of any available method of paying by card within the taxi. If you are using the airport, there are ATM's available for cash withdrawals, within the baggage ...
