I am visiting from Poland and my company has given me an American Express (Amex) corporate card to spend on things. In Poland I can barely use it. Is it the same in Lisbon?
Scusate, the American Express Card isn’t accepted in most places in Portugal. Heck in most of Europe as you know it isn’t accepted. The higher fees for American Express along with not being part of any Portuguese banking system make it prohibative for local businesses to accept it. If you go to local places they will not accept credit cards at all.
Some ways around this would be to use your Amex to buy vouchers online for items. Think Uber or Airbnb Experiences. You can also do cash advances on your American Express, just know there will be a fee and exchange rate to Euro.
