Hi - Is the Discover card widely accepted like VISA and MC in Aruba? Thanks.

Most places that I shop do not use Discover...I haven't one so difficult to answer regarding Aruba but I know AX, is used in the larger places and all the hotels but most places display that they take Visa and Mastercard.....

Thanks Judy - when I went to their website to register my travel it said that the Discover card has "high acceptance" in Aruba. Mostly using it for the rental car because of the added insurance coverage. Keeping my fingers crossed ...

People still have the Discover Card? They must be the people who also get Travellers checks.

I think they named it Discover because it is near impossible to "discover" a place that takes it.

I used it in dozens of places in Aruba this past July. The only place that did not take it was Dollar car rental but Thrifty did.

My wife and I got Discover card last year. It came with 60,000 miles each. Card is free. Got free tickets to Aruba last year.

I use Discover by choice in Aruba. So far have not had an issue with it. It is accepted wherever Diners Club cards are accepted-you see a lot more of them abroad.
No annual fee.....no foreign currency fees.....
I never seem to take my AMEX anywhere. If they tried to charge me a fee for it would be history.

We have Discover that we use exclusively in Aruba. Never had it refused anywhere. We also got it for the rental car coverage and the no foreign transaction fees. I recently inquired about the car rental coverage and was told they discontinued it for most card/account types.

Thanks all for your positive responses regarding using your Discover in Aruba :D
Note to ArubaJoey: It's 2018 dude, lol - The "new Discover" is not your dad's "old Discover Card" anymore. You should check it out! :) 8)

Mmmm, I think that's Ann who lives on the island most of the year, she has a home there, but travels back to New Hampshire often.
