The writer also overlooks the obvious fact that many businesses in the
U.K. accept MasterCard and Visa through banks in the U.K., and
M.C. and Visa are accepted whether the card issuer is local or half
way around the world.

If the amount is significant, he could also open a U.S. dollar account
at a bank in the U.S.A. and would only have to go through the transfer
process occasionally (the transfer cost is very high proportionately
for small transfers, but the percentage is much less percentagewise on
large transfers). If he has a U.S. bank account he could also get a
debit card ("check card") from the bank in the U.S.A. and withdraw the
funds from an ATM in the U.K.
