Pre paid travel cards/cash??


Can anyone give me any insight on pre paid travel cards. We are a party of 4 travelling to Smugglers Cove for 10 nights and although our stay is all inclusive we obviously want to do a couple of trips and maybe visit the town for a bit of retail therepy and enjoy a couple of beers here and there. Any idea how much cash to take and weather its better to take EC or American Dollars? I have always relied on my credit card before but exchange rates being what they are makes the extra spend a tad expensive. Any suggestions appriciated-thanks.

Sorry about late reply.

I have used a Halifax Clarity Mastercard to withdraw cash at several worldwide ATMS, most recently in Brazil and Tenerife.

There is no cash withdrawal fee and by paying off the total balance each month the interest at less than 13% per year means that you pay marginally just over £1 per £100 withdrawn.

See moneysavingexpert.com/travel/…halifax and halifax.co.uk/creditcards/…
