When I Travel, I Use MasterCard Because It’s Accepted Everywhere! #AcceptanceMatters #MC

I love to travel and as a blogger, I get a lot of opportunities to travel. One thing I’ve learned from my traveling experiences is that MasterCard is taken pretty much everywhere I go. I’ve had other cards in the past and those cards were NOT accepted everywhere or if they were, there was an additional fee. So, it’s good to know that I won’t have a problem in making a purchase with MasterCard when I’m traveling.
I recently visited Mexico City and it was so easy to use my MasterCard. I love using my MasterCard because there are no additional fees for my transactions, no fees for the card, and I earn cash back on my purchases. Plus, I love that when I purchased an item in Mexico for pesos, MasterCard automatically converted the amount to dollars on my statement and recent transactions – with no additional fees for the service! I mean, it can get confusing paying for items in a foreign country, especially when you don’t totally understand the conversion rate. You don’t have to worry when it comes to MasterCard though.
Frank and I recently went on a bike tour with his new motorcycle and we used the MasterCard at a variety of establishments, including restaurants, the movie theater, and a tourist attraction. We handed the MasterCard to the cashiers and there was no hassle at all and no questions asked. They simply took the card, swiped it for the amount, and handed it back, asking for a signature on the receipt. I’ve had other cards where the cashier will get a questioned look on his or her face, flip the card over, and then shake their head saying they don’t take that card. I have never had that happen with MasterCard.
Not only do I use my MasterCard for traveling, but I also use it for my daily purchases. This could include eating out at restaurants, grocery shopping, buying beauty supplies, and even paying bills over the phone or online. Heck, I even bought bottled water from a vending machine in the airport using my MasterCard. We will be traveling to Hawaii next month and will definitely be using MasterCard for our purchases.

I know that if I have an issue or need to dispute a charge, the reps at MasterCard are always super friendly and helpful and get the issue resolved. If you’re looking for a card to use for your everyday purchases and traveling, I would highly recommend MasterCard!
