I'm considering taking a Visa Debit Gift Card to Paris next week to allivate the need to take lots of cash. Both my ATM and Credit cards charge "junk" fees to withdraw money and charge overseas. Even though the fine print on the debit gift card says it can be used worldwide, I just want to see if that is true in Paris. It is a Visa Debit card, that I can "pump up" with dollars to use. Anybody have any experience with how widely accepted Visa debit cards are in Paris?Will I have problems, or does it act just like my regular debit card would here in the US??
Any comments would be appreciated.
