For anyone who might be wondering what the level of credit card acceptance is like in Poland, I’ve managed to find nowhere over the last month that doesn’t accept them. I took out some Polish money when I arrived in the country a month ago, and I still have all of it. I like paying by card, primarily as I get Avios points, but also because it prevents waiting for change, getting the wrong change or being confused about how much to pay.
Even in the smallest bars, where I had initially expected them not to accept cards, they do so willingly. Indeed, the same is true of cafes that I’ve visited, with the vast majority of other customers I’ve seen doing the same.
Such a very modern country…..
