I doubt it. Why would you want to anyway? Get a Credit Card that doesn't charge a fee for foreign purchases like the Halifax Clarity.

Have never had a credit card always used a visa debit and this has always been accepted just wondered if it's accepted in maldives as well

Thanks

I would just email the resort via their website to find out for sure. They usually respond fairly quickly.

Debit card will be fine..no problems as would be most major credit cards, cash or a pre paid currency card such as Fair FX. Travellers cheques are no longer accepted in the Maldives.

There is a very limited number of debit cards that provide no fee usage abroad otherwise yes your bank will charge you on average 3.99% for debit card use on your total amount spent. Credit cards such as the Halifax clarity as mentioned or a Post Office CC are good for no fee usage abroad....and remember to ALWAYS pay in the local currency being used.

Most resorts accept any Visa / MasterCard being debit or credit but be aware of fees, we were on Kuredu last year and used a Caxton FX prepaid credit card, just apply for a card and load it before you go & no fees, Happy Days !!!
