Ive left this a tad late xD (as usual, with the important things)
I'm off on holiday for 3 weeks, first to South Africa and then onto Dubai. This is technically my first independent holiday, so in reality its the first time that I am in control of my expenses once abroad :P
I don't currently have a credit card, and only really rely on what I earn + my debit card.
However, after speaking with my rather blunt (info wise) bank, they told me that I would be charged a hefty retarded fee every time I make a transaction or withdraw money from an ATM.
I did a little research into Travel Cards and Visa Electron, and first impressions they do seem to be a bit better, but after looking at so many, I am now totally confused and tired xD
So, I was hoping, that the wise, exuberant bargain hunters that you all are, could help me out in choosing the best financially inexpensive travel card (or alternative) where I wont be charged any commission/ fee's when buying/withdrawing in Dubai or South Africa?
Or if that isn't possible, then the next best thing?
Or..... Any advice that you can perhaps give me? :(
Thank you very much for helping :D
