    Wearing a mask on planes and airports is no longer mandatory in Brazil

    The use of masks will no longer be mandatory on planes and airports in Brazil, determined by Anvisa (National Health Surveillance Agency) this Wednesday (17). The use of the mask will become only a recommendation.

    The measure takes effect from the moment it is published in the Official Gazette, which should happen in the coming days. https://www1.folha.uol.com.br/cotidi...ampaign=comptw.

    I found this funny because I took your comment last time we chat and got an Amex. I was in Brazil this May, and used Amex everywhere and never have a problem. One time at a small coffee shop, I used my Visa and instant problem, the machine didn't read the card.

    So let's see.

    My reasons for using cash, besides the risk of skimming, are that cash is accepted everywhere and also because you often get a lower price using cash. When I check in at a hotel in Brazil I always negotiate the rate and almost always get a discount, specially when I offer to pay with cash. In prives I don't negotiate the price, but often they have a cheaper price when paying cash.

    In Brazil they always had problems giving change. Because of this I always make sure I have between 50-100 bills of 2, 5, 10 and 20 reais bills when travelling in Brazil. You can just enter a bank and change to the bills you want. It might not be useful for those staying one week, but it's very handy if you stay for a longer time.
    If Sperto says it, he's providing good advice based upon his vast knowledge and experience. But if I say the same things, I'm removed from reality? A guide a decade old is to be celebrated. But if I cite an article from the year 2022 noting that currently only a quarter of credit card transactions in Brazil are contactless, that's somehow illegitimate because one can post a photo of a street vendor who accepts credit cards (which proves exactly what anyway)?

    I point out that the same article states that contactless transactions are growing exponentially in Brazil. If and when it gets to where it is in the States, then I would be willing to use credit cards in Brazil more. But from a pure practical standpoint, I will always be a heavy cash user in Brazil because mostly what I'm buying is buceta and cuzinha, and that's all about cash for gash baby! Oh, but I guess all of Nounce's tutes are accepting payment by contactless credit cards now hahahahaha!

    Just a bit more Contactless Payment context...

    Re-Posted from the SP thread.

    Contactless Payment context w/r to "no cash on hand".

    Here I risked my phone being robbed to take picture of the street vendor credit card device near Centro. Also you should google EMV. ...

    Two ways of looking at it. I guess?

    The guys that will mug you on the street don't know if you carry cash or not. If they find no cash they might hurt you until you give them your pin code.

    I don't worry about being robbed as I use common sense and have a good luck charm....
    I took this mean, the stores / restaurants with "no cash on hand" are less likely to be robbed, since the bulk of their payments are electronic / digital, thereby giving any potential bandits, nothing to steal.

    Different POVs, different takes, yields different insights. I'm always learning.

    That's a valid point, if you are scared of getting robbed you might want to avoid cash. However, I don't agree that there is a lower risk of getting mugged if you use credit card. The guys that will mug you on the street don't know if you carry cash or not. If they find no cash they might hurt you until you give them your pin code.

    I don't worry about being robbed as I use common sense and have a good luck charm. I always divide my cash in two places, large bills hidden inside my shorts / trousers and about 50 reais in small bills in a miniwallet. If I would get robbed I rather loose 50 reais than loosing my credit card.

    Very good point and it makes perfect sense. Yes, I noticed that the last time I was there in Rio/Praça Mauá. As mentioned, even paying contactless with your phone.

    Ah, so now the cash machines will change your big bills into little bills for you is it? Thanks for clearing that up.

    Sometimes cash doesn't cut it
