Using cash machines abroad

If you normally take a credit card with you when you travel abroad, it may be a little more difficult to avoid ATM charges as this is a convenient way to obtain local currency in many overseas destinations. But again these types of transactions often come with a whole host of hidden charges. There’s no question that most debit and credit cards are expensive to use overseas but some are more cost effective than others.

The Sainsbury’s Gold Credit Card, for example, doesn’t charge a fee for ATM withdrawals whether you’re at home or abroad. You won’t even be charged interest on the amount you take out as long as you clear your balance in full before the end of the month. That said, the card offers a range of extra benefits for travellers but all this comes with a £5 a month price tag. To find out more, take a look at A new credit card to use abroad.

Scientists and astronauts have been holding a three-day workshop in Germany, discussing how countries would react.

Rusty Schweickart is a former Apollo 9 astronaut and now head of the European Sapce Agency's committee on near-earth objects (NEOs): " What we need to do is bring the world together, recognise that this is a global threat. This is not Germany or the United States or ESA or anybody else. This is a global threat."

The conference in the city of Darmstadt is considering theoretical but plausible scenarios of an asteroid impact on our planet.

"The question often arises in the general public: Can we in fact do something about this. And the answer is yes. We don't even have to develop new technologies. Our existing space technology enables us to actually slightly change the orbit of an asteroid that we see headed an impact 15 or 20 or 50 years ahead of us."

The workshop's finding will later be merged with findings of other experts to create a final report to the UN committee. The report will recommend how to react to an impact threat
