Prepaid Currency Cards
Another way of taking foreign currency abroad is by using a prepaid currency card. Effectively you exchange your money in the UK and it is loaded onto a debit card complete with pin that can be used abroad the same way as a standard credit card. This saves carrying large amount of currency around and offers the protection of chip and pin.
