"And, if any of you have recommendations for a good international credit card, let me know. It's too late for this trip. I leave on Tuesday next week. "


I tend to use two cards for international transactions and call the
card company before the trip to notify them of my itinerary. The
approach generally works.

I use a corporate American Express card that has worked well - as well.


And may I add that HSBC Mastercard has quite effectively lost
any chance they may have had in having a business relationship
with me or mine based on your comments.

Companies with poor customer service eventually learn to improve
or go out of business. I recall a salesman in an auto dealership
- (this was a GM - Pontiac as I recall)- who after being told of a
lemon being sold suggested that "Every dog deserves a second bite."

They don't.
