"There is currently a surge towards card payment of (eg) train fares."

Something a recent visitor from Oz had problems with was the lack of ticket machines taking cash. Yes he could use his Australian credit card but that incurred a "transaction charge" for each and every use abroad.

It's another way to make your country more expensive for tourists, which at some point means that more of them will go elsewhere, and tourist income will be down for hotels and restaurants too.
