Which is better?
Prepaid cards e.g. Travelex Euro Cash Passport (Mastercard) or something like the Norwich & Peterborough Gold Classic debit card?
The Norwich and Peterborough reminds me of the old Nationwide Flex account which was often recommended by many with a view of withdrawing cash. That is what we'd do whilst in Greece. It is my understanding that I would get charged Visas exchange rate on the day of processing the transaction?
Travelex seems confusing, but many say that you lock in your rate before you go. We've used Travelex in Cyprus and it was as if money disappeared at a faster rate. Any ideas?
There were no notifications of fees from the Cyprus ATM's.
It claims to have free cash withdrawals.
If anyone can advise on which is best, indicating why then I'd appreciate it.
