Canada or Mexico or Europe
In the partly academic nature of my question, I'd like a card that would work in any of those places. I know different payment networks lead in different countries - like MC in Germany and Discover affiliate JCB in Japan. Also, I know a lot of countries use cash far more than credit cards.
For practical purposes, I am accustomed to carrying cash when in Canada, and for a small pricing adjustment many merchants will accept US Dollars, so mainly I would like a card that would work in most of Western Europe. As far as I know, France uses C+Sig while the UK and Germany uses C+PIN. Can't one card be capable of using either method, though, depending on what the card terminal is equipped for or the merchant prefers?
