Can I use my American Express card overseas?
You can use your US Amex card abroad to make purchases or withdraw cash. In many places in Europe, for example, stores and restaurants prefer not to accept Amex payments because of higher merchant charges. That means that, especially in cheaper stores and family businesses, your card might not be accepted.
