Visa Card to the Premium and Metal will a huge benefit when you traveling in countries that does not accept Mastercard.
I am curious, what countries support one but not the other ?
Also as a Premium/Metal user you can still have the standard card which is Visa for some So if it is just for travels, then a Metal card might be overkill.
MasterCard is widely accepted everywhere
Visa is partially accepted in some countries (Sri Lanka for example)
But with MC I didn’t had any problem in years
I think some user’s would still probably like the option to choose between either Visa/Mastercard/Maestro. For instance in the event that one of the networks decides to die, like VISA did earlier this year, all across Europe.
I would personally like to be able to carry around two of them (VISA/Mastercard) although I can only get a mastercard for physical and I wouldn’t mind if they added Maestro to my options, along with UnionPay (for use with people visiting certain Asian countries like China).
A few places in Canada only take MasterCard as well. In the US I can think of one or two chains that only take Visa.
Yes there are some store in the US that only accept Visa.
