My FairFX card was issued by MasterCard

This card was not accepted by ATM's in Cuba. Will it work in the Gambia? Or must I take a Visa card?

There were problems last season with cashing travellers cheques in TG and on this thread there is some info on a pre-paid VISA card:

When I got there the ATM in my hotel took Mastercard. Too late! But I used my Visa Debit card and got 69D to the pound when the hotel were paying only 60.

The ATM at GT Bank in Senegambia has MasterCard sign up and was being rolled out to all branches last season.

Thanks for that. Now back feeling that I could have done more for some of the people I met. Including visiting FIVE schools in one day. Quite peculiar to be surrounded by 30 three year olds all wanting to touch me!
