As I'm going to majorca at the end of this month. But I'm looking at getting a Pre-card, maybe the one with the cashback

Thank you

I don’t have a prepaid card but following Martin Lewis recommendations on MSE have a Platinum Barclaycard credit card as cash withdrawals abroad are free - ie no transaction charge and no interest

We are going to get a revolut pre-paid card when we go to Florida in March. Usually we use our.halifax clarity credit card when we go abroad and we love it. But we are conscious that brexit is happening while we are away and we've decided to lock in a good exchange rate if we get a good one before.christmas!

Revolut is brilliant have used mine in Florida and most of Europe and the exchange rate is very good with them .

I have a travelex prepaid card plus also a halifax credit card.

Worth double checking the prepaid cards since I'm not sure that they all lock in the rate on the date of loading unless you buy them in the foreign currency in the first place. I think some convert at the point of use. I've not looked at it for a few years though.
