France - Card use in France

(Kelvin Williams) #1

I’ve just returned from Bordeaux and used my Mondo card there very successfully, both for larger chip and pin payments and contactless, which is fairly popular in Bordeaux. I didn’t use an ATM as none of the banks were familiar and I couldn’t be certain that the French Bank wouldn’t make a charge even though Mondo does not their end.
My first meal out was more expensive than anticipated so I had to use my standard Debit Card, as I hadn’t topped up Mondo enough, but this gave an opportunity to compare rates. Mondo was over 3p a £ better than my Bank rate.
