"There are no chipped credit cards for US Card holders that are compatible with European Chip-&-Pin systems. I think some Canadian banks are now issuing chipped cards, but I don't know whether they are compatible"
Can any Canadians, that was in France recently, shed some light??
(by the way...not having English as a first, nor even second language, I thought that "chipped" meant damaged..my cards have a chip but aren't chipped)
I did ask my bank but, as usual, they have no clues...travelling outside Canada isn't one of their priority (last time I told them I was going to the USA, one staff said "oh you want your ATM blocked.." and another "why would you want to use an ATM outside Canada") and yes, I use one of the big Canadian banks in downtown Vancouver....
