Can I pay with my debit card when I travel abroad or in Canada?

Several networks allow you to use your debit card when traveling.

In Canada

You can use your debit card to pay at most merchants.


The CIRRUS, NYCE and Maestro networks allow you to use your debit card directly with merchants abroad.

However, some regions of the world have not yet adopted the smart card. The magnetic strip on the back of your card allows you to make transactions anywhere in the world.
