Try this one. This is a cash card that you load with euros, and Fairfx give you the best exchange rate, that I have found in the UK and you don't pay the usual foreign exchange fee of 3% that a UK based crd charges when I am in the euro zone. It's also useful for buying stuff from the eurozone.

Last year my Fairfx card was skimmed and the account emptied, I got all the money back after about 2 weeks, so always a good idea to have a back up card!

I used Travelex card in south Africa in December, same principal worked well

Thumb no transaction fees

Plenty of credit cards have no foreign transaction fees. Get the one that provides things like frequent flyer miles that benefit you when travelling.The best deal is often to cash in those "miles" for dollars and charge your flight on the card to get more miles that you swap for credit to pay whatever you have charged. It's a game. If done carefully you don't lose.

Be careful, very careful.....
