Travelling the world with Mastercard
To begin with, Mastercard is the most widely accepted card in the world. From hotels and restaurants to entertainment venues, airports, ATMs and more—Mastercard is accepted by 40 million merchants at retail outlets, across more than 200 countries. It even has easy online payment gateways. Also, it is the safest way to pay. Removing wads of cash makes you an attractive target for thieves, especially on foreign turf. You can track every transaction. All Mastercard payments are recorded, so that you can monitor your expenses. This is extremely useful at places like Bali, where comprehending local currency becomes a task. Better still, it comes in handy when you need to dispute, cease or reverse an unauthorized transaction. Mastercard also minimizes the risk of duplication. In case of theft, it can be swiftly cancelled and replaced no matter where you are. Its EMV chip offers multi-layered security, making every transaction unique and virtually impossible to replicate.
