Gate 1 says that Indonesia has gone to a 6-digit "chip and pin" credit card system starting as I remember early 2016. None of my USA based credit card companies are able to even create such a card with a 6-digit pin. This description I believe refers maybe only to cards issued in Indonesia.

Has anyone traveled to Indonesia since eary 2016 and been able to use their normal credit card with signature instead of PIN? I heard second hand from someone that had a friend that had and did not encounter a problem.

Probably 4 digit pin right? Indonesia requires cards issued by them to be 6 digit. BOA cannot issue more than 4 digit. I tried.

For the last 4 or 5 years we have been buying the "gold" policy from Travel Guard. Usually just a bit more than Gate 1 Travelex coverage, but has $1,000 000 medivac coverage. G 1 Travelex is only $100,000. In extreme cases medivac can cost well above 100K.
