Chase The Globe...Please

Banking

Early birded today to get a head start on my last weekend. It’s really a shame that Chase Banking is not global because now I have to open a European bank account to make money transfers. It would behoove you, Mr. JPMorgan, to step your international game up for a two-pronged reason: increased market share and profitability. At least look into it. Which bank to choose...Barclay’s, Fortis, UBS, HSBC? Technicalities: sometimes well-placed mines in the field. One wrong step and you’re making moves in a direction you would rather avoid. Experience is a navigator, though. But it’s always better to calculate the risks instead of taking them blindfolded. If the math is done right, eventually we will discover our inner Ferdinand Magellan. All this circling the globe is making me tired. Naps are for old people, so I think I’m going to take a horizontal life pause!

Chase works with the world bank. I say you should have gotten traveller cheques and Euros before you departed. A good traveller keeps a keen eye on money needs. Hotels offer SAFES and Concierge banking.I am guessing you thought you could just, Slide the Debit/Credit card everywhere for everything????? If you go to South America, I recommend you spend a bit more and get a travel agent. They are ANGELS in times of need in foreign lands. Safe Travels Mate.
