Found 15th Jun 2011
Just booked a hotel in Majorca through the hotel group's website. I must pay for this when I arrive and I am unsure as to what my best options are. If i pay by a card then which one should i go for??? (taking into consideration fees,exchange rate ect..)
Thanks in advance

Just use your credit / bank card or cash.

You dont really have any other options really.

Less fees will be cash, but even using your bank card or credit card the exchange rate is normally good.

Cheers Rick but i use Lloyds TSB and they are supposed to be crap to use abroad. Read somewhere that it is either "THE" or one of the worst to use overseas.
Thats why i posted this thread..

My Capital One card doesn't appear to have any exchange rate fee - its just the base rate.

Best cards from abroad use are Halifax Clarity card or Santander Zero card, both are credit cards.
Best to check with your bank to see what their charges are for use outside of UK as some debit cards can have quite a sting.

Why not travellers cheques?

The Post Office have a travel credit card - I'm not sure how good or bad it is, as it's only recently been launched, but it may be worth a look:
