    No multiple choice :(

    Dad uses cash left over from previous trips along with cash from high street outlets and non fee charging credit card.

    We take a small amount of cash and use our Nationwide Select Credit Card.

    I clicked specialist debit card, however with Curve, the card I do spend on is actually it's a specialist credit card as the underlying card here.. thoroughly recommend it!

    We take some cash from price comparison sites for day to day small expenditure and a specialist credit card for bigger spending. A shame there was not an option to say this in the poll.
