    I was thinking of getting a travelcard to load my money onto, is this ok? Or would you recommend another way of accessing my money. Thanks

    Which country do you live in? If in UK, get yourself a Nationwide Flexaccount- you can withdraw money from any ATM in Thailand or pay with it directly, and although there are some local and bank fees, this particular debit card has the lowest charges of any other card plus you'll get an overdraft for emergencies (i've checked!) x

    I've just got the travelex passport globe card I think it's called, a flat rate of 1.4%, not too bad. There exchange rate is not as good as others but its hardly noticeable

    Hello Miss_Stead....

    Carrying money to abroad is always a matter of tension....In the old days one have to carry the money with him in the form of cash but nowadays,it is not so...The choice made by you is the best one to carry the money with you...Using a travel-card or the debit card is the safest way to have the money with you...
