On a recent business trip to Switzerland, I found at lunch that my Visa (Credit & Debit) and Mastercard (Revolut Debit) were not accepted. I didn’t have any Swiss Francs on me and my boss had to bail me out. The lady in the restaurant said that the fees were too high and they only accepted EuroCard / Maestro.
Since I have to go to Switzerland with work regularly, I would like to know:
– Is the EuroCard that comes with German bank accounts the same / compatible with Maestro?
– Is it possible to still get Maestro pre-paid cards?
I know that Maestro is not common any more in the UK, this is just for use in Switzerland.
Thanks in advance!
