"Do not use AMERICAN EXPRESS" Europe Tourist Trap Tip by AlbinoCunha

Europe Tourist Traps: 104 reviews and 51 photos

If you are travelling with international credit card, do not use AMERICAN EXPRESS.

I travelled from Brasil to Europe last November, and:

While VISA and MASTERCARD converts
Euro 1,00 = R$ 2,60/2,70

AMEX makes Euro 1,00 = R$ 2,90

I was stolen by AMEX.

Unique Suggestions: Use only VISA or MASTERCARD when travelling from Brasil to outside.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
