I'm going to Austria next month and I am looking for a good way to take euros, without using my credit card and getting stung with the FX. Last time I visited my family there (in Bregenz close to the Austrian Bodensee - absolutely gorgeous in September) I took travellers cheques which was such a headache!

My sister told me about a card from tesco which worked a treat - the prepaid tesco travel money card. She got a great FX rate and she could use it to buy stuff in shops and get cash. I found their website - but can't seem to apply for the card. I really want one of these, so if anyone knows how to get it, please let me know.

Cheers
Ant

Hi Ant,

Afraid this is no longer available. It says this at the bottom of the website page:

"The Tesco Travel Money Card is no longer available to new customers. Existing customers can continue to service their card in the usual way."

Are you from the UK? If so, the Post Office have one similar to that - I've never used it, but you could check that out? I just usually use my regular ATM card, and yes I agree, travellers cheques are a pain in the butt!

We were talking about bank cards

If you are coming to Ireland, you will be able to buy a pay-as-you-go mobile phone sim card for instant use from any mobile phone shop. You will have to ask their rates, they change all the time. I use Vodafone and have no issues
