Having used both in recent years I believe that the real difference is with status levels. :D

Having said that there may be some real differences between Visa & M/C at individual institutions :?:

If you look at the Platinum cards, Visa or Mastercard. As a whole Mastercard has a better offering regardless of card providor. Plus Mastercard has a Global Service that can help you with most basic queries world wide.

Visa is trying desperatly at present to catch up some of the business it has lost over the last few years. In my view Mastercard is just that bit more accessiable at present.
