For charging cell phones, laptops, hair dryer, flat iron, etc. Anybody have recommendations? Last time I was in Switzerland, I bought a $10 converter and it blew out my phone charger. Yikes!!!
I'm purchasing a one month cell phone and plan from callineurope.com unless someone has a better idea. Leaving the Iphone home because last year I had a $300 phone bill when i got back home from overseas.
I never use an ATM machine at home, but do use credit cards exclusively (for the frequent flyer miles). Will my normal VISA card work in an ATM machine? I do have a bank card that is supposed to work on ATM machines so I'll be checking with my bank about that. I know to call the VISA people and let them know I'm traveling otherwise they issue a fraud alert and freeze it. Been there, done that. I had read a NY Times article that said credit cards have to have a chip, but I read here that they don't. Have we figured out who's right yet? My money is on TA people : )
