Dear Sue… Pre­paid Cur­rency Cards

My Weekly - - Finance -

Are these cards easy to use abroad? ✦ I road-tested the Cax­ton FX Cur­rency Card on a trip to Greece. The card is free; ap­ply on­line, load up the cur­rency and you get a PIN num­ber, as with other cards. Use it any­where that takes Mastercard – 35 mil­lion out­lets world­wide. I used it in su­per­mar­kets and tav­er­nas. Only one su­per­mar­ket re­fused as it didn’t take cards. It was a no from easyJet when I handed it over to pay for in-flight drinks, though. It saves tak­ing a wal­let full of cash, but do take some as back-up! WWW.CAXTONFX.COM
