Forex card is prepaid card which is issued by a bank. The card can be used in a foreign country. The card is charged in local currency.

It acts like debit card. The card holder can use only that much of amount which is in the card account.

Forex cards are also issued by Thomas Cook,AMex and a variety of other companies.I have used them on my last to trips and found them to work as well as any other cards I have.
It can not hurt to have as many different ways of getting cash out of ATMs as the demoneyterisation recently highlighted.
I will be taking one on my next jaunt in December.

Forex cards were invented, devilishly by modern day Dickensian thieves. Unless one is in desperate credit crunch, or budding oligarch or a cartel capo.... Avoid it like a poison-ivy
