"I read about your service in a newspaper . Probably Guardian or Observer. Seemed a good way to manage the currency.
I should have done it earlier as I had to leave almost as soon as I got the card and was worried about the pin.
In fact having contacted you we got it over the phone and that worked well.
I also bought some cash from various sources to take as well as the card and it was lucky I did so because in Germany there is still a great reluctance to take cards, and some will not accept Master Card. My usual card is also Master card so I really did have to pay in cash.
The majority of places that did accept the card were still using the ''signature'' method rather than the pin.
I will use this method again provided I think the exchange rate is better than I would get using my ordinary card and would be happy to recommend to others.
Our next trip abroad takes us to the Ukraine and then a ship landing up in Istanbul, not sure it will help much on this journey!"
