I have read many posts extensively and in my opinion, have done my research. Most answers I am finding to my questions, were not posted very recently.
I have 2 debit cards I am bringing to Paris for the sake of withdrawing money from the ATM machines.
I have a MasterCard with a strip...not a chip. I do not intend to use this in machines, rather possibly at restaurants or stores. Does the card need to be chipped in order to use it at one place or the other? Please let me know. I do have time to order a chipped card. Thanks.
