Following that report today on the other thread about Johnson being more likely to go for no deal if Trump wins you might be better waiting until after the US election. My guess is sterling will fall if we go for no deal but not so sure what will happen if Biden wins and it forces Johnson into accepting a deal with the EU. The pound plummeted after the Brexit vote but it was worse against the dollar. Maybe the Euro will sink a bit as well if there is no deal but I would say its a dead cert the pound will fall further. Maybe Dollars might be a safer bet I dunno. Or Turnips.

I tried to open a Starling account but didn't get very far. Their system knew we are in France and my only 'smart' phone has a French SIM.

That's a pity cos I'm sure they do euro accounts now.

Not really Pat as we live in France and use the cards for virtually everything we would have to 'load' thousands onto the card.

raynipper Our PO cards are Credit Cards Pat. Just like any other CC but no 'foreign' fees. Brilliant for more than ten years.

patp We chose to have one of those pre loaded cards from the Post Office when we were over wintering in Spain. It worked very well as we could go on line to top it up and then use it for most transactions when out and about. No charges for it use.
