Credit Card Security While Traveling

Credit card security while traveling is a big deal as credit card theft is still common. While recently traveling in Europe, we saw that many European vendors still print credit card receipt slips with the entire credit card number on them. In the US, credit card receipt slips only print out the last few numbers and XXXX out the other numbers. To prevent the theft of your credit card number, tear the receipt slip vertically in two so that it divides the number. Then throw away half the slip in one trash can and the other half in another location.
