I'm leaving for Madagascar in a week. I am arriving a few days before scheduled group tour, so will have to cover meals and sightseeing for those days. (Hotel is already paid.) Even once the tour starts, most meals are not included so must be bought individually.
I read on some website (Lonely Planet I think) that the only kind of card you can use in ATM's are Visas. My credit card is a Master Card. I do have a Visa that's a debit card. Does anyone know if it's true that only Visas can be used, and if so, can a debit card be used? Otherwise, I am going to have to carry all cash. (I will buy Euros before leaving.) Any advice most appreciated.
