I have read recently about a prepaid card from a company called Caxton FX. Has anyone else got one of these and if so, what's the verdict?
Six and a half of pure Tornado!
Hello, I travel all over the world and I have three Caxton FX cards. The Euro Card, Dollar Card and Global Traveller Card.
I also have a couple of credit cards as well as back up.
I have had no problems with these cards and have found them to be superb. You can also take advantage of currency fluctuations if you are sharp.
They are easy to use and load with money, I do it all online but there are other options as well.
You also do not get charged at ATM's.
I used to use a Nationwide card which was free but they have changed it now and you cannot withdraw money abroad with it any more.
