Prepaid Holiday Cards
Prepaid cards are certainly worth considering, although it's still worth taking a bit of cash with you when you go away. Also, if you have a Nationwide debit or credit card, consider using it when you're on holiday as our research found that it was offering a better exchange rate than the prepaid card providers.
Other credit cards which offer good value for overseas use include the Post Office card, Santander Zero card and Saga credit card.
