Contactless cards are widely accepted in Spain’s major cities, so you should be able to use your Visa at most places. However, English cards—and some French and U.S.A. contactless cards—cannot use the contactless feature for purchases over €20.
And you’ll be able to explore with confidence in cities like Madrid and Barcelona, as taxi drivers are required to accept card payments.
Need cash in Spain? You won’t have trouble finding ATMs in most of Spain’s larger cities. And getting cash once you arrive is safer and more convenient that carrying lots of cash around. Plus there’s another benefit: withdrawing Euros while you’re in Spain can actually be less expensive than getting Euros at home.
