I don't know if everyone knows about this. It looks like a brilliant idea from our pals at Visa.

Does that mean no ATM fees...? I can't tell. But if that's the case.... sounds fantastic.

Looks interesting. I have sent off the following questions to Visa for a response. I will let you know what they respond with.

Does the card work at any ATM on the PLUS network?

Are there any PLUS fees associated with money withdrawl at ATMs?

If I wanted to get more money on my card, can I add money to the card or do I just get a new card?

Hi everyone,

Just to let you know - I e-mailed to see where I could get this card and it's not yet available in the UK - won't be available till next year at earliest.

Finally got a response from Visa on the questions I asked.

The Visa TravelMoney allows you to access your funds in VISA ATMs and is accepted at any merchant who takes Visa Debit cards.

Regarding the ATM fees there is a $2.50 ATM withdrawal fee par ATM
withdrawal in the US and $2.00 elsewhere in the world.

At the risk of sounding like a complete dolt (I am, however, not too quick when it comes to numbers...), how is this card any better than opening a seperate "travel-money" account at your own bank and using your own ATM card...?
