France | Spain | Italy

Tourism in mainland Europe in countries like France, Spain and Italy are some of the most popular spots for Americans traveling abroad to spend their vacations. While the official currency here is the euro, you'll notice that credit cards and bank cards aren't widely accepted everywhere since these countries are still very commonly cash-based. And although ATMs are widely available in most major cities, it's not uncommon for foreign bank cards to be denied, so it's recommended to exchange your dollars for euros before heading abroad.

TIP: Pickpocketing is common in a number of major cities throughout mainland Europe. Keep your wallet and cash in your front pocket, when possible.
