If you want to have a U.S. credit card for use in another country, you need to pay attention to couple more things besides choosing the best rate, fees and other features. To choose what is best for you under the circumstances, first of all you need to make sure your card will be accepted widely enough in the country where you plan to reside. MasterCard and Visa are the most widely accepted ones, with American Express coming next after them in popularity and acceptance. You also need to make sure you can access your credit card customer service easily, check if there’s a branch in the city of your future residence or there’s an international toll-free phone number. And of course you should choose what is best for your needs, habits and credit profile. Compare Best credit cards on our site to find one that is right for you.
