Hey guys,<BR><BR>I'm heading on European Inspirations tour in winter, and then continuing to travel around Europe/Asia for the next few months following the tour!!! <BR><BR>Anyway, Like many people I assume, I've been Umming and ahhhing over how to carry money!<BR><BR>Do I take cash? travellers cheques? Credit Card? Visa/Mastercard Debit card etc...<BR><BR>Anyway, after INTENSE researching, I found my soultion, and I wanted to share it with Aussies heading overseas! (As this option is only avaliable to those living in Australia)<BR><BR><BR>Check out this link<BR><BR><a href="" target="_blank"></a><BR><BR>This is a great option, and it is tailered for those of us traveling overseas. Basically its your one stop card. You buy this sucker for $35 at any ANZ branch. You can deposit money into it like you would any other bank card!<BR><BR>It has set currency conversion rates, and as its a visa - it is able to be used pretty much everywhere in the world!! Do your self a favour and check out the site, all the info is on there!<BR><BR>If your going overseas, and travelling to multiple countries and using different currencies you'd be mad not to have a think about it. It's safer then carrying cold hard cash and travellers cheques!!<BR><BR>Anyway, let me know what you guys think, OR if anybody has already used this method before!!!!<BR><BR>I'm heading off early December, so It'd be good to hear back from anybody who's used it!<BR><BR>Cheers guys, and I hope this helps!!!<BR><BR>- Paige <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)-->

    How did you go with the ANZ travel card? Im trying to choose between it and the Travelex passport card. My sister and i are heading to Europe in late June and its the last thing we need to organise!
