With a prepaid currency card, you can transfer money from your bank account to the card and receive that day’s exchange rate for your cash. The cards can then be used at ATMs at your destination or used instead of a debit card. You can usually top up your card online or by phone.
What you do need to watch out for are the ATM fees and “inactivity fees” when you do not use your card for a while, these charges may make the original saving from the low exchange rate obsolete.
If you are lucky enough to own one of the special "good cards" you may find that the best option is to spend using this card abroad. However, be very careful that you have the exact card that is listed as "good" as ones outside of this can be very bad and using one will mean that you end up paying well over the odds for your foreign currency and purchases.
Banks will change the terms and conditions of the cards they offer from time to time so it is important to check that your credit or debit card still offers these options.
