Of course major places like airports and big hotels took them but once you got away from major tourist centers it was much tougher. I usually had to go inside, explain why I had no pin, and so forth. Some places simply refused to take my cards and I had to pay cash. This was true for all cards.

This is my biggest fear for my trip back to Europe this coming spring. I was in Canada earlier this year and for the most part places would still swipe but, they said it would be changing shortly as the move to EMV is completed on all cards.
