    yes u can... i have banked with the halifax for 11 years and never bothered with travellers cheques or taking too much cash.. halifax cards basically are visa electron now which is known world wide and you CAN use them there. there are cash machines everywhere admittedly yu get charged about a quid or 2 for using them but you can withdraw money and i have used it in shops!

    also if you go to your bank and pay 12 quid they will clear a cheque quicker for you

    yup you can - I was in spain last summer and I'm off to Magaluf in a few days - you can use your halifax / bank of scotland card in any ATM and it withdraws euro's - costs £1.50 each time you do it though.
