Heading to New Zealand next week for a month and I'll be needing to use cash to pay for various holiday houses.
I have a Coles card for normal fee free purchases. But it's too late to organise a Citibank card for fee free ATM withdrawals. Coles charges a $5 fee. What are my best options?
Possible ideas I can think of:
- carry NZ cash before arrival
- do the above and make the odd big withdrawal using one of my cards (Coles MasterCard, Nab debit card, Nab Qantas platinum visa, 28 degrees, Westpac Altitude Platinum - $5 ATM fees but unsure which is best of the bunch in other fees)
- use an Nab travel card. No ATM fee but has a currency conversion fee? Possible to load NZ currency on to avoid this?
- use a Qantas travel card. $2.50NZD ATM fee. Possibly no currency conversion fee?
- Travelex travel card?
