    After a fair bit of looking around, I have (possibly) landed on taking the Halifax Clarity credit card (Mastercard), and a Nationwide FlexAccount debit card for my 5 month jolly in SE Asia.
    UK members' opinions and experiences? Are these good options, or are there others I should take a look at before making a final decision?

    hello , jonny

    the nationwide flex , used to be a good card for travelling , as they did not charge for using a cash machine out side of the uk , but having just phoned them they now charge you for withdrawals, i think they said it was 2 or 3% , if u have time i think Santander do not charge u for cash withdrawals. also most of the banks in thailand now also make a charge for cash withdrawals , so yuo could get hit twice for one withdrawal

    also i always have some travels cheques , just for emergencies
