Re: Going to BVI! Bring cash?

Even though the BVI uses US dollars, some credit card companies regard a transaction there as "foreign" and charge foreign transaction fees. I might have got this backwards but I'm pretty sure that Citi Mastercard charged but Chase Visa didn't. I usually use cash for most things, so it isn't a huge deal for me but it's worth checking with your credit card company if you are planning to use the card a lot.
