Cash or card for Dublin
runflorestrun · 13/01/2020 17:44
Please excuse the naivety of this thread (I'm not very well travelled!)
Due to fly to Dublin (from the uk) for a long weekend, is it more advisable to take cash, or would I be able to use my visa debit card for transactions... more chip and pin rather than atm use.
Many thanks in advance x

Take cash as you'll get charged for fees per transaction if you bank with lloyds anyways. I'm not long back from Christmas there and used my monzo card which had no fees.

Get a sterling card and you can use if for free abroad. Wouldn’t take too much cash as you’ll loose on the exchange rate.

Get a Starling card, pay your money into the account and use the debit card to pay. If you do something wher cash is appropriate, just withdraw some from a cash machine. Best possible exchange rate and zero fees.
Some common bank debit cards charge a fee per transaction, so if you're one of those people who literally pays every purchase, large and small with a card, you could pay a fee every single time.
