    Does anyone else have problems using non-U.S. OTAs and a U.S. credit card? I can sometimes find a better deal on, for example, Yatra.com but I run into issues when trying to pay. There is "always" some type of issue with my CC [and my CCs are fine otherwise]. Is it just me? Does anyone else have experience with this? I called my CC companies and they've really been no use at all. The last CC agent said, and I paraphrase, "of course you were rejected, you need to activate your card first." [card is activated with a significant spend on it]. Needless to say, that call was not fruitful. Thoughts?

    Side note: Yatra.com CS is awful :(

    Cheers -

    I've had something similar before with a site that I can't recollect (Russian based). Could not get around it at all.
