I think HSBC also allow a PIN assignment on their credit cards. Cashiers will still ask for a signature rather than the PIN, but sometimes transit card vending machines will demand them (for the Venice "People Mover" shuttle, for example) and not accept any cards without entering a PIN. Keep to a four digit PIN (some cards will allow you to use up to a six digit, but many vending machines will only allow four digits). While some countries have greater flexibility, four digit has so far been the default which always works.
