I also tried out a Caxton FX prepaid currency card (and when I received it I found they’d added £50 to it for me, which was a really lovely surprise!). I’ve never used one before but found it quite easy. I was slightly concerned that in order to top it up you have to register your debit card with them online but they assure me it’s 100% safe. Once you’ve topped up your card, you can use it as a Visa card or at ATMs without being charged. Once you’ve registered your card, you can top up the currency card by phone or even by text, leaving your own cards safe at home, which I think is quite a good idea. I used it at an ATM in Miami with no problems at all. Impressive and I’d definitely use it again.
Lastly, I gave the Targus rotating iPad case a whirl. I blooming love this case as it rotates, allowing you to stand the iPad up (particularly useful when you’re reading online magazines and want to see the whole page portrait rather than landscape. It also has a couple of different positions so you can adjust the pitch of the screen. Very impressed. You can find Mobile Fun’s range of iPad cases here. Many thanks to them for sending me the case.
