    What we need and what we can get are not always the same.
    Nationwide might be hard to beat in your situation.

    Nationwide offer doesn't last long enough, but worth getting a nationwide current account and debit card to save you £'s on your ATM withdrawls and purchases overseas on the conversion.

    The only one long enough for you is Capital 1 but that is only going to be on balance transfer offers.

    Best thing is probably to carry a nationwide credit card for emergencies and then apply for a zero % card to transfer the balance to. Although lack of any income while you are travelling may make it a bit tough to get accepted.

    Good luck and have a great trip.

    Smile :), it makes people wonder what you have been up to.
  • I would definity get a Nationwide current account and credit card. I just applied for the current account at a branch and they said I could have a credit card after they did the credit check! I have taken the Nationwide cards abroad twice instead of taking cash and it was great. Used them in cash machines, shops, and hotels! If you need interest free why not see if you can get the Nationwide card then transfer a non-existant balance from Nationwide to Capital One (or similar), then pay off what you didn't use when you get back.
