I've never been sure about what is the best way to take money abroad. Taking all cash away with you is obviously very insecure, and I've always found travellers cheques a bit of a hassle (although great from the protection point of view). I used to use a Nationwide FlexAccount and credit card as they didn't charge for foreign currency transactions, but then they introduced a charge so I stopped using them. - Why Fairfx? I was on a cashback website one day when I saw that there was an offer with Fairfx for a free foreign currency card and also cashback if you applied for one.

The card itself works fine, application is easy and the fees are reasonable. However, the are money grabbing, misleading and the customer service is terrible. While in Spain we rented a Quadbike and a block was put on my card for Euro300. We returned the bike and the transaction was reversed. But after two days the money has still not gone back to my card. I returned to the merchant and he confirmed and showed me that the transaction was cancelled and that FairFX was responsible for the delay. After a two day delay i finally got a reply to my email, shame i was already back in the UK. The representative said that it will take 21 days for the money to go to my card, or I .
