Daily Tip: When traveling in unknown areas, always fill up your tank of gas when you are half full. You never know where you may or may not find a gas station. In Europe and other countries abroad, many gas stations will not accept American credit cards or debit cards if they are not chip and pin enabled. Most American credit cards are chipped and signature, not chip and pin therefore cannot be used. In those cases you have to find a gas station that is managed by a human and will accept cash.
