The only real difference between a Visa and a Mastercard is that they operate on different payment networks, but this doesn’t affect the end-user of the card. From a user perspective, there is no difference between a Visa and a Mastercard, and they have similar acceptance rates across the country. Differences in cards are more likely to stem from the bank that issued you the card than from the fact that it is a Visa or a Mastercard.
