So I’m about to move from the UK to Japan for 10 months for a year abroad at the end of September. I’ve been researching banking and what the best options are for me to avoid having to pay stupid large fees while I’m there to withdraw money. Japan is a cash society and cards aren’t really used in shops, restaurants, etc so I really only need a card to withdraw money.
I came across an article about Starling and it seems to be a really good choice since there are apparently no fees for withdrawing money abroad. I just want to see if there was anyone here who has any advice or anyone who has used their Starling card in Japan who can give me feedback/advice on it.
Thank you! ^~^
