USD forex card


I have a USD loaded forex card. When i am using it in any POS (point of sale) shops in SA i ve been charged a cross currency loss of 3% of transaction. I would like to know whether any place in Johannesburg will accept this card and give me US dollar hard cash. If i convert USD to RAND in a forex agent i think i will not loose this much money in conv.

Or if you guys know any better method plz advise.

Suggest you contact the issuer of the card and get the correct information.

Forex agents are bound to charge commission but the issuing bank should not.
