Are US issued cards really chip and pin or only chip and signature?

Most are chip & signature. A few are chip & pin. In general you shouldn't have any trouble with a swipe card.

Be careful about dynamic currency conversion. When you buy something be sure they don't charge you in USD. It's usually a 3% upcharge for the convenience of having the charge in your home currency. I always check, and ask to be charged in local currency.
