In a couple of weeks i’m off to holiday to Ile de Ré in France for a fortnight.
I’m having a lengthy debate with my wife about whether we should get €900 in cash before heading out or to use my Mondo card. She’s not convinced Mondo’s the best option.
Just so i get my facts straight, am i right in understanding the following when using Mondo abroad?..
There’s no commission charged.
There’s no transaction fee.
I need to request the money as Euros rather than GBP (something along those lines) the ATMs will give me this option.
The exchange rate is Mastercard’s - the final rate is settled up to two days later.
Mastercard rate is better than others
Max i can take out of the wall per day is £250
Max i can pay with the card in one go is £1000
Any other pros and cons i should be made aware of?
What would others do - cash € or Mondo card?
Thanks in advance!
