I'm based in the UK and travelling to South Africa in two months. I'm slightly against carrying a lot of cash since I have a habit of losing things and we are going to be staying in a lot of different hotels. I want to convert my money with the best exchange rate I can and also have a method of paying which secure and versatile.
For this reason I am unsure what the best approach would be, with the most obvious options being:
- A prepaid travel card
- A mastercard with no charge on foregin purchases
Since I'm not a regular traveller I'm a bit stuck. What does the communiuty recommend?
