Swipe is OK. But she'll need some way to get cash and it is always a good idea to have at least one backup method
Chip and PIN would be preferable, but swipe cards can be used in most places
Most importantly, make sure the card issuer know that she will be using the card abroad
A cultural difference. In the UK, no bank will issue a credit card to anyone under the age of 18. So she may get some odd looks or questions on why she has a credit card at all.
