Well you can use them, but be aware the exchange rate is poor so you will potentially be ripping yourself off. If you have a debit card with reasonable foreign use fees you would be better off using that.

Chappi1, if available to you in the land of the long white cloud, have a look at the 28 degrees mastercard, used as a debit card after loading up in credit. No overseas transaction fees however you will pay between 20 - 50K VND atm fee/withdrawal and most ATM on

ly allow 2million dong/transaction. On our first trip we used Travelex cash passport but I have gone off that and now prefer the 28 degree card.

If you can get a Citibank Plus account in NZ it's even better for cash withdrawals as it has the good forex rates and no foreign use fees the 28Degrees MasterCard has but it' a debit card. So you don't have to pre-load it to avoid paying interest- if your MasterCard gets hacked only the credit part is protected, any pre-loaded funds can be lost.
