Prepaid Cards

Hi

Can anyone (especially UK travellers) tell me if prepaid cards are widely accepted in SF?

Thanks, Angela

If you are talking about Prepaid Debit Cards, if they have a VISA or MasterCard logo on them, no worries. make sure and get a 4-digit PIN code, or opt to use "credit" when the machine asks you. American Express and Discover card logos also work, but not at every location.

We used the Thomas Cook "Mastercard" one in 2012 when we were there and it was widely accepted, also used it daily for cash withdrawls and it worked fine. We are going back in september and will be getting another one or maybe a Virgin Money one (as you get discount on future holidays)
