Pre paid currency cards

It is not just the fees you need to look at, you alos need to look at the exchange rate offered. Sometimes one balances out the other so any advantage is lost. Also, if you finish with a large balance you may bneed to see how much it costs to get it back into Pounds.

 

 

All I would suggest is to look at the websites of various and make your own choice. We use a Fairfx card which is as good as any, but it is not loaded with huge sums, merely enough for a rainy day emergency, and any hotels that we may have to use en route. We also used them to get some currency and delivery was within 24 hours. I was not quite so impressed to get €100 notes in the bundle but there was a large spread of other denominations to balance it.

If you GOOGLE-search using "prepaid cash cards" (omitting the quotes ) as the search-term, you'll retrieve lots of information about these products, together with comparison websites that detail the fees involved. For example:

To add to Dave225's comments, there's a good deal of forgery of large-denomination euro notes and retailers may be reluctant to accept €100 or €50 notes, particularly if the bill involved is small.
