Mastercard or Visa?


Just a simple question.

Which credit card is more widely accepted in Alaska, Mastercard or Visa? I know the charges that the company makes are different but I vaugely remember something that one of the two is more accepted.

Thanks for help.

Actually no difference. Pretty much all businesses that accept one accept the other. AmEx is not accepted in quite as many places but still pretty widely accepted too.

Don't forget to bring CASH if you'll be traveling anywhere outside cities or the well-trampled route around Denali National Park.
