I am a student planning to go abroad in January and I need a card with little or no international fee. I don’t have good credit so I think I might only be able to get a prepaid card. If I get a prepaid card, will I be able to load money on it from my Regions bank account? Thanks.

Consider . This is not a prepaid card. It is a regular credit card. There are no foreign transaction fees, and you will be able to improve your credit score.

If you want a prepaid card, consider The American Express® Prepaid Card. This card can be used abroad and you won’t be charged any transaction fees. You can load the card through direct deposit, a bank account, or with cash via Green Dot or Vanilla Reload Network. Also, with this card you get American Express benefits including purchase protection, 24-hour customer service, roadside assistance, and more.
