Not overly impressed with Revolut. Still haven't received a physical card. Was offered an emergency card but no one is replying to my support chats now so doesn't look promising for my trip on 01/08/15 :-(

we currently have a card with Caxton, which we will finish with as soon as possible. We were stuck in France and the prepaid card had run out???? I had limited Wifi and very limited minutes on my mobile. I rang Caxton, explained what had happened and they said they would ring me back. 4 days later and two more phone calls they eventually kept their promise. It turned out that the reason for " running out of cash" is because if you use an automated petrol pump and it says that you can have, say 180 euros worth of petrol, but you only use 30 euros, the card is debited with the 180 and the balance of 50 euros is credited some 3 weeks later'!!!!!!!!!!!
I asked why they had not returned my calls which were all logged each with a greater degree of urgency, and they told me that they were too busy with incoming calls to deal with outgoing calls.
My advice is AVOID CAXTON LIKE THE PLAGUE, the rate may be good but the service is awful.:(
Your prepaid card will not work at automated petrol stationsFor security reasons your Caxton FX card will not work at automated petrol stations. We recommend that you avoid using them or you use an alternative card to settle the bill.
Avoid using your prepaid card at Toll booths
Caxton FX prepaid cards require a merchant to seek authorisation before they provide the goods or services. The majority of European toll roads and bridges do not seek an authorisation and therefore you can't use your Caxton FX currency card at most toll booths.

I have not been abroad for some years and last time we went I took travel cheques and some euro's in cash but I guest time has moved on.
We are going to Spain in Sept and was thinking is a pre payment card the best option now days as I don't fancy taking cash apart from a few euro's.
I have a CoOp Cash Minder account which I don't fancying using abroad and I don't live anywhere near a Metro bank and would not want to open another bank account so is a Pre Payment card the best option?
Was not sure the best way to spend in Spain or which Pre Payment card to go for as i was thinking of taking cash out of a ATM each day or would spending direct on the card be better.
Any tips on which card to use would be great
