Otto Goes Globetrotting
Otto Steininger’s recent Illustration for The New York Times Travel Section has been featured on theispot.com.
The illustration was for an article about spending and exchanging US currency abroad, particularly though the use of bank credit cards.
With several tips available to Otto upon which to focus, he zeroed in on the growing frustration at US cards being rejected by foreign automated kiosks and ATM’s. Finally, some US banks are issuing cards with smart chips, which have greater security and are the standard in Asia, Europe and Canada. These cards provide better coverage for the modern traveler.
