I'm traveling to Canada for 6 months, and am looking for a pre-paid debit card (ideally Visa or Mastercard) so I can buy stuff out there without getting walloped with the charges/exchange rates.

Ideally, one that I can load by wiring funds in.

Any ideas at all?

I'm in the UK at the moment.

Prepaid Mastercard

President Choice Bank account offer no fee banking options... and in Canada we have a a debit standard called Interac that will work at any store accepting debit cards... this may be an option for you to open an account for a month, transfer your money and use the interac card to make purchases- all at no fees at all from the bank.

HSBC has a program that can do this from the UK let them know you are travelling to North America and the card is linked to your account
