I never count my car as debt, simply because a car payment will probably always be there
I have to disagree with this one, too. I fiananced my current car for three years and I've been driving it for six. I see no reason why I won't be able to get another three out of it before I retire it for the next car.
It's not as shiny as it once was, but it's just as fun to drive as it's ever been.
On-topic, I'm about to travel overseas for work (Basel, Switzerland) and this will be my first trip to a country that's not attached. I'd planned on calling Amex and CapitalOne so they might note on my account to expect some overseas charges. Is anyone aware of any other issues I can prepare for now, while it's not an emergency?
