I'm giving some money as a gift to someone who is going to go traveling (USA). I thought rather then cash it might be good to get one of those Visa/Master cards that are prepaid and put money on that. I haven't ever used one though so I'm not entirely sure where to get them from, if different places have different fees or what fees apply (new card fee? top up fee? usage fee? cancellation fee?).
Figure the Oz Bargainers would let em know if this is a stupid idea or the best way the do it. Would love some thoughts on this.
