Hey i was looking in to taking a travelex cash card to america when i go but someone just warned me that the atms in america eat the cards alot and you are left stuck, just wondering if this actually happened to anyone. Thanks

    I’ve just come back from the USA and used a travelex card everywhere I went. Shops won’t accept them as visas, but getting cash out of ATM’s was easy and I never had a problem. Like Amy said you get a second backup card anyway.

    I used travelex cards both times I went to America and never had a problem.As others have said you get a 2nd card so just keep that somewhere seperate to the original one and problem solved!

    I used a debit card from my bank, the fees where a lot less at they didn’t charge me for loading money onto it. The other advantage was that I was able to use it as both a debit and visa/mastercard.

    I also had a spare
