Travel to Europe easier with chip enabled debit cards
This left most Americans without many solutions, since most US Banks wont issue chip and pin cards. Until now. Travelex, the worldwide bank and currency exchange company (you've probably seen their booths at the airport) just announced that they'll be offering prepaid chipped debit cards for savvy travelers early next year.
The only problem? Travelex offers a pretty crummy exchange rate for average travelers. As Ed Perkins from SmarterTravel in this MSNBC article points out: "You're paying a stiff price for the convenience" And hey, Travelex shafts on you cash exchanges at the airport, so why not with a prepaid debit card?
Needless to say, if you're willing to take a beating on the exchange rate you can pick up your own card over at Travelex.com under Cash Passports.
