I get the impression the US mainly (entirely?) uses old magstripe cards rather than chip-and-pin -- which is probably why a lot of the card details fraudulently used in this country are American cards -- but supermarkets at least generally still have the option to swipe and sign. Won't work with self-service machines, of course.

If you buy at a counter rather than using machines, there's a day ticket you can get that covers trains and buses in the Midlands for about eight quid --
