We have been in Great Britain about once a year for the last several years and it is standard procedure, no one takes your card from the table and disappears. Everythiing is done at the table.

Having had a credit card number of ours used by some thief we thought it was a great idea. Fortunately we were able to correct that theft fairly easily, but we have friends who had a terrible time after someone got their number.

Crooks will find other ways to get the numbers but this seems like a great idea to me to make it harder for them.

There really was no down side to the process that we could discern.
