Reka Card ==> Reka Cheques / Cash

I am leaving Switzerland in a few weeks, I have a reka card with just over CHF 500 on it and I can't think of much to spend it on - does anyone have any awesome ideas?

Failing that I read that I can terminate the card and they will send me the balance in reka cheques (less a fee, of course).

Re: Reka

Reach them about the possibility of a cash out.

Re: Reka

By cash out you mean to cheques, or it's actually possible to get cash? Unless I missed something I didn't see anything about it on their FAQ page.

Re: Reka

You could ask them if they buy back the REKA cheques especially when you are leaving CH where the REKA Cheques cannot be used.

Re: Reka Card ==> Reka Cheques / Cash

Why not treat yourself to a weekend fling at one of the many mountain hotels/resorts before you leave? Trip up the Jungfrau for a final photo op?

Go to the Reka site linked by jrspet; you can search the online-guide for the many businesses (hotels, mountain railways, restuarants, etc.) accepting Reka checks/cards.
