    Hi,
    Taken Martins advice to take Barclay card Platimum credit card abroad, no charges on withdraws from ATM's. Be aware in Malaysia hardly any ATM's work with credit cards. We tried 10 machines one day in KL but only one worked at HSBC bank. In Penang it was much worse with no ATM's in Batu accepting credit cards.

    I had issues in KL too, some days the ATMs would accept my cards and some days they wouldn't.

    Foreign credit cards are widely accepted by ATMs but connectivity seems to be flaky.
