never heard about prepaid visa before now. my own visa is a debit card - amount drawn from bank account instantly when used - so what is the difference?

prepaid credit card : predetermined balance is paid at time of card purchase, and then these funds are available from card at any time ... cardholder does not require a bank or bank account.

technically speaking, these are not 'credit' cards, since one is using funds that have already been given in order to establish the balance on the card.

I don't see why they could not be used internationally.
