These cards are essentially like a debit card which you load with a currency which can be either in the one currency you are going to be needing or can be in pounds which will then be converted to the relevant currency when used abroad. If you have time to order one of these cards online for delivery before you travel, it can be one of the cheapest ways to buy options your holiday money available. You will usually need to leave around 7 days for delivery of your card to your home to get the best rates, but you can sometimes purchase the cards from providers operating a bureau de change at your airport.
If you are lucky enough to own one of the special “good cards” you may find that the best option is to spend using this card abroad. However, be very careful that you have the exact card that is listed as “good” as ones outside of this can be very bad and using one will mean that you end up paying well over the odds for your foreign currency and purchases. Banks will change the terms and conditions of the cards they offer from time to time so it is important to check that your credit or debit card still offers the same thing shown on this list before using it abroad. If you have more than a month before travelling then you might like to think about applying for one of the “good cards” but be sure to check with the provider that your card will be delivered before you fly!
