If I don't have a prefect credit card which is the best holiday spending card

I am going to Portugal in 2 weeks and want to know which is the cheapest way for me to spend money abroad. I don't have time to get a new credit card with perfect exchange rates so which is my best alternative of the accounts I have?

Nationwide Flex Debit Card
Barclays Debit Card
First Direct Debit Card
Barclaycard Credit Card
Virgin Credit Card

or is it much cheaper for me to apply for a Pre paid card?

If it's only going to make a few pounds difference for about £500 spending I won't bother with a prepaid card.

I will be paying the credit card off as soon as I return and the credit cards have no balance currently on them.

Thank you for your advice
