I've made a few threads i know.
I am going to the states soon and I have about $400 in USD right now. I have been pondering over getting a FairFX currency card (which I do hold anyway but i mean topping it up) the rate is fairly better than everywhere else Ican see (Being 1.575 right now)
The hotel we are staying in doesnt have any safety deposit boxes and for money security i'm not really wanting to get all cash incase anything happens.
The Currency card however, I'm worried they may go like crown exchange, part being the really decent rate, second being MSE seem to highly rate them and i'd want to buy at a decent rate (say 1.59-1.60) and if that came today then i could be risking it?
Although I'd be topping it up with a Lloyds TSB Visa Debit so if they went bust would I be covered on this?
The other being Travellers cheques. I've never seen one before, nevermind used them! I like the fact that they're 'replacable within 24 hours if lost/stolen' but I dont know how true that is? How do you replace them?
Does anyone have any experiences with any of the above and which would you recommend?
