Debit and credit cards Although it’s a good idea to have some cash when you first arrive, one of the easiest ways of accessing funds while you’re abroad is with your debit card direct from an ATM cash machine (bancomat). While the flat transaction fee is usually quite small, most cards can only issue a maximum of 250 per day; check with your bank before you leave home to make sure your card is set up to work abroad, as some banks have an increased security system that means your card will not work abroad unless you have informed them that you are travelling. Debit cards from the UK can be used to purchase goods in shops. Credit cards can also be used in ATMs with a PIN number that’s designed to be used overseas but remember that cash advances on credit cards are treated as loans with interest accruing daily from the date of withdrawal, and there may be a transaction fee on top of this. Note that payment by card (carta) is not as prevalent as in the UK and US; many budget hotels aren’t set up to take cards, and even some upmarket restaurants insist on cash, although you shouldn’t have too many problems in the main tourist centres. MasterCard, Visa and American Express are the most widely accepted cards in Italy and Switzerland.
