PrePaid Debit MasterCard??

Jump to last reply

I'm leaving for an 11 day trip to Paris, the UK and Ireland. I'm taking a LOT of money with me and I do NOT want to carry all of it around and also don't want to pay a lot of fees for using a credit card or my Bank Of America card (though they have no ATM fees for Global ATM Alliance machines, they have a LOT of other fees). I found a prepaid MasterCard from Western Union that doesn't charge for anything. Only thing I'll have to pay is a 1.95 for ATM withdraw plus applications ATM operator fees. My concern: is Debit MasterCard as widely accepted in Paris, UK and Ireland as a Debit Visa? I will be carrying around *some* cash but I plan on using that only for food. It's an educational tour that I am going on with my friend who is a school teacher so we are mainly doing the tourist places but at night we plan on doing our own thing which is when I would be using the card. I can't find a prepaid Visa that is as good as this so does MasterCard carry the same acceptance as the Debit Visa?
