Bermuda is known as electronically one of the most wired countries in the world. No wonder that all kinds of credit cards are widely accepted in Bermuda like the Master, Visa and American Express.
Almost all stores, restaurants and big hotels will accept credit cards. However remember that some small hotels like guesthouses or inns take only cash and may not accept cards. I have used my Amex and Master cards for taking cash advance from ATMs in Bermuda.
They have worked without any problems. Visa cards will also work similarly. Bank of Bermuda
and Butterfield Bank
have 24 hours ATMs all around the island. These credit cards can also be used to take advances from any of the local bank branches. Travelers Checks are accepted in all banks.
