Traveling to the UK and Ireland next March – should we get a proper chip & pin card?

Hi,

My wife and I are traveling to the UK and Ireland next March and currently have the CSR. We're planning to book several rental cars for when we're there with UR (to spend UR and get the $ 75K CDW) but will have other expenses to pay for while we're there and we understand that the UK and Ireland is very chip & pin-centric. I am aware that the CSR (which is currently the only travel CC we have) is only a chip and signature card and was reading online that having a proper chip and pin card might be advisable; particularly for automated machines that don't accept chip and signature. Should we get such a card and if so, which card would you recommend? I saw that the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite Mastercard is a proper chip and pin card that could be a potential option.

Many thanks,
Jon
