Does anyone have experience of whether gift cards are easier to use abroad than in the past?  I had a terrible experience using them in Canada, the only time I've used one.  They tried to charge me the hotel's exchange rate instead of the real currency rates, and it took over a half hour at the front desk to sort things out. I'd love to buy these cards, but I want to make sure that I don't get really dinged on currency exchanges.
