Hi, we're off to South Africa shortly for a month travelling around and want to take a pre-loaded cash card/cash passport for funds to withdraw via ATM's. I thought I'd nailed it with a Travelex one, but have just read numerous negative reviews online where users have used it overseas encountering numerous problems. Any suggestions of cash cards that have worked well and hopefully without incident in SA are greatly appreciated please. Obviously we want to keep withdrawal fees to a minimum.
We'd also like advice on a sat nav to use there. Are free App downloads for android smart phones worthwhile or a waste of time? I'm wondering about using my phone's GPS system as sat nav rental prices from car hire companies there are stupidly expensive, about £5+ a day!! Cheaper to buy a new sat nav!
Thanks in advance for any replies/suggestions.
