Why travel money cards are the best bet when visiting Greece

https://mozo.com.au/travel-moneyThe ongoing financial and political problems in Greece are causing concern among holidaymakers.

A lot of Aussies visit the country each year when they tour around Europe due to its beautiful climate, gorgeous beaches and vibrant local culture.

However, the nation has been forced to accept a huge loan from its fellow eurozone members and there are fears that it could remove itself from the single currency altogether within the next month.

This could leave a lot of tourists in limbo – especially those who have purchased fistfuls of overseas travel money.

Obviously, you will be unable to spend euros in Greece if it reverts back to the drachma, so having a prepaid travel money card is crucial.

Storeowners and service providers will still accept plastic products, so you will be protected against any possible exit from the eurozone.

Prepaid travel cards are also far more secure than carrying cash around, as you can easily call your bank to cancel it should your wallet go missing.
