FYI, this is the best website I've found for comparing debit and credit cards for international use. For example, it shows which cards have zero or low fees for ATM withdrawals when traveling or living abroad, away from your home bank. (Among others, Schwab's Investor Checking ranks highly as a debit card and Capitol One as a credit card for international use.)

Hint always let the bank or credit union know that you will be out of the USA or the bank or credit union will be putting a hold on the card then you be stuck

I agree. Excellent advice.

It happened to me once a couple of years ago while paying for a Tropic flight to AC. Embarrassing and cut the cash a little short! Never again. I always notify the card I will be carrying and never had a problem.
