Use it abroad

AdvantagesGood rates, take it abroad

DisadvantagesNot that good in out of the way places

"...travellers cheques or cash, just VISA - and it was fine.

Waste of space

AdvantagesYou can use it at Asda

DisadvantagesYou can't use it anywhere else

"...it anywhere because it says Visa on it, how wrong can you be? The only place I've used it so far, successfully, is Asda.I did use it once in Smiths, with no prolems, but the next time I went in there the assistant said they didn't take them, Oh yes you do, I said I brought a cuddly Tigger with it last week.Well apparently I must have imagined the whole episode because they can't take them, she said. I believe that if the shop takes Visa, it is possible ..." Read review
