DD1 is going to New York for 2 weeks (this week, so no time for her to change anything) & her credit card charges for overseas transactions; I have one that doesn't & we have the same initial & surname.
They don't use chip & pin over there apparently, just signature, backed up with passport for ID.
If I lend her my card, is that criminal????
If there are problems she can use her own card instead, but I don't want her clapped in irons for trying to use mine!
Not sure about legalities but when we were in Florida recently I used my DH's for the entire time thinking it was mine (2 cards on the same account). The signature wasn't checked once, just as well because its completely different. Can you get her a card on your account just in case?
But what you pay is miniscule really. A few withdrawals from the cash point is going to cost, what £10? If you can't cope with that, you have no business being in NY on holiday. Bloody tips will cost you more.
