Pre-paid travel cards are catching on everywhere
Holidaymakers everywhere appear to be wising up to the benefits of pre-paid travel cards when heading abroad.
Gulfnews.com recently reported that uptake of the packages has soared in Dubai and now UK-based AA Financial Services has suggested that a greater number of people in Britain are now using the cards too.
The organisation's director Mark Huggins believes that tourists are taking advantage of the cards in order to get the best exchange rates when taking a trip to Europe.
Aussies who are planning a tour of the continent would also be well served loading their cash on to a pre-paid card while the euro is so weak.
In doing so, you are guaranteed to receive the current rate even if the euro strengthens or the dollar weakens by the time you board the plane.
"Keep an eye on the exchange rate and if it falls further, take the opportunity to add to your holiday cash balance," Mr Huggins commented.
