"Credit Cards" Top 5 Page for this destination Phuket Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Cathy&Gary

Phuket Warnings and Dangers: 96 reviews and 89 photos


Be extremely careful when using credit cards in Phuket. Five weeks after we returned home my sister had a call from her bank saying her credit card was used in Malaysia on the weekend.

She only used her card twice in Phuket, once at the duty free shop at Phuket airport and also on checking out of Andaman Beach Suites. She also used it once at duty free shop in Kuala Lumpur airport.

The card never left her sight each time. I would recommend not using credit cards at all. Credit card fraud seems to be on the rise in Phuket.

A little update on this tip, a friends who was also with us on this holiday has just found out their credit card has also been used. They also only used their credit card at the same places listed above.
