      Im using it in Slovenia (€) and i never had problems with withdrawing anywhere in Europe. You pay 1.8€ per withdrawal no matter how much money you withdraw. If you withdraw in different currency then your account you pay extra 1.99% exchange fee.

      So if you with draw 10€ you pay the same 1.8€ fee as withdrawing 250€ which is the max allowed so im just withdrawing max everytime so the fee is pretty decent around 0.7% considering my local bank chares 2.6% per cash withdrawal on my regular mastercard. Im not sure if you can get higher limits on that.

      For paying with it in shops and restarurants etc you have 1k € daily limit with no fees.

      Oh and the yearly membership costs 10€ as well.

      I have a £ money bookers account and a card. I know that they dont charge any fee for using the card but they more than likely use a conversion fee if you are in $$$.

      Regards

      if MB account is $ and your card is in EUR and you want to get Pounds, you get hit twice so make sure it is either MB account $ -> Card Eur -> ATM Euro or MB $ -> Card $USD -> ATM any currency

      ok, im still kinda confused what would be the best option.

      MB $ -> MB Card $ -> £ ATM

      or

      MB $ -> MB Card £ -< £ ATM

      Which one costs more?

      For the 2nd option you provided you can see the cost here:
      http://www.moneybookers.com/app/help.pl?s=fees

      For transactions involving currency conversion Moneybookers adds 1.99%


      So to compare which one is the best for you, you have to look up how much exchange rate the ATMs are charging

      If you are moneybookers VIP the 2nd option is better because you don't pay ATm fees, discount on exchange rate and stuff

      oh FUUUUU moneybookers. they told me to upload 14.28 to apply for the card, but because of the markets it now costs 14.29 :(

      EDIT: and now they blocked my bank transfer option because I tried to upload the minimum 1.43 USD but they told me it was too little :( someone send me 1c? :D

      I`d say the best option is :

      make another account in £ (first call the support) - then order a card in £ and withdraw or pay in £. Then there are no fees when paying in shops, and only 1.80 on withdrawal.
