Halifax Cash Card Abroad (Debit)

Should I or shouldn't I?

I'm only going to be taking out around 200-250 with two transactions.
I'm thinking it will probably cost me around £10.
I travel in about two weeks and I don't really want to take all cash.

Thanks

I thought Halifax and Lloyds and Santander were among the worst (or santander was one fo the best.. not sure)

I think Nationwide charges less than both.

Why not get travellers cheques?

Nationwide cash card is still free in most countries if not all european ones at least.

Iv read about the nationwide cash card and it does look the best by far.
Unfortunately I travel a week on Sunday so I dont think i will be able to create an account and receive the card and pin number by then :cry:

I used my Halifax card abroad no problems, fees aren't much at all if it's only a few largish transactions.


Thats what im thinking. I may just bite the bullet. After all the pound is at a 19 month high.

take your own advice then.

halifax cards are the worst abroad.

Halifax Debit Card
Spending penalty: £1.50. Exchange load: 2.75%. Cash Withdrawal fee: £1.50

so £200 withdrawal is gonna cost at least £10

nationwide is fee free and interbank rates!

I said I THINK. I'm not a walking talking credit card fee expert.
You've pointed the OP in the direction I said in the first place.

Nationwide are idiots, told me I had to apply in the branch, went to the branch, they told me I had to apply by post, but they photocopied all my details to send internally to save time, they then lost my application and all my details inc passport photocopies. I would never go near that shambles of an organisation.

NW are the best financial organisation I have ever dealt with by far. Every bank will have one customer that they messed up.
