I Used Apple Card overseas and had a lot of problems

Tom’s Guide:

Visa really is everywhere you want to be. It’s not just a marketing slogan, but a cruel fact I learned when I tried to rely solely on my Apple Card during a recent trip to Italy.

I’ve been testing out Apple’s credit card since it launched in August. And that includes taking it overseas to see how this card performs away from the safety of an Apple Store. The verdict? The Apple Card isn’t always the best travel companion, at least when you head overseas.

The headline and body are misleading. There was likely no issue with the Apple Card itself but the way it was being used by retail staff. Regardless, something to keep in mind when traveling – have a backup card just in case.
