Re: Compliance....

Taking cash out on a CC is a bad idea wherever you do it. There's usually a handling charge even in your home country. Also since cash can be stolen you lose most of the protections of the CC since no issuer is going to refund you for cash stolen out of your pocket.

But if you have a CC why would you want cash? There are some remote parts of the world where you need it but in most tourist destinations CCs are freely accepted. Certainly anywhere that accepts a bank card for payment (and most places within spending distance of an ATM) will accept a CC.
