I'll prepare information about all of this as soon as I know the

That reminds me: if you intend to use a credit card in electronic
contexts (such as buying train tickets at a machine, etc.), you
should make sure you know your PIN code. On the way home from
Anaheim I helped some guy who had some problems because he wasn't
even aware that his card had a PIN code.
Many US cards do not work in point-of-sale applications in Europe even
if one knows the PIN code. Last Spring, I had 6 US bank cards and a
SwissPost card rejected at the train kiosk in Amsterdam, and I believe
the same 6 failed at whatever IETF we last went to in Europe, because
I recall borrowing train tickets from Ole.
