Credit card payments are more widespread in Italy than in other countries. A law stipulates that even the smallest amounts can be paid by credit card. Even ambulatory seller were seen on the beach accepting credit card payments.

As a result, you will rarely experience businesses that, for whatever reason, do not accept electronic means of payment. It is very rare to find a freaky guy in a bar or restaurant hanging the card reader for decoration under the ceiling.

ATM and credit cards when refuelling

Automatic filling stations are widespread in Italy. These petrol stations have machines with banknote readers and credit card functions. With almost all machines you can pay with a credit card. Foreign bank cards are not accepted everywhere. The machines also give no change and so you should only enter as much money as you can actually refuel. If you want to fill up, you have to pay with credit card.
