Prepaid travel cards safer on holiday
One in five holidaymakers has been a victim of pick-pockets whilst travelling abroad.
That's according to the latest findings from Direct Line travel insurance which reveals that more than 2 in 10 people had items including credit cards stolen from their accommodation.
The stats also reveal that mainland Spain is the worst crime hotspot for Brits travelling abroad, with France coming second.
When you're thinking currency and card to take away with you, why not consider a prepaid travel card.
They're accepted in all places where Visa or MasterCard credit cards are taken - the great thing is once the money on the card is spent, it's spent, so criminals can't spend lots of your money without you knowing.
