Prepaid money cards or bank card ?

Last question about my trip - I promise! :P
My friends and I are going on our trip in just under 3 weeks now, and I'm wondering about how to take my money with me. I've changed up a bit of cash (I have 250 euros) to take with me at first. I was wondering how else to get money - I've seen those prepaid money cards but I don't want to have a set amount of money available. I don't actually know how much I'm going to need as a total.
I have 2 Visa debit cards that my 2 banks issued me that I use to withdraw money from ATMs in England - would you recommend that I use these to withdraw money abroad? I'm not fussed by fees, I don't think my banks charge me much, and was thinking of making one or two withdrawals only (when I run out of money, withdraw say, 200 euro that will last me for a while instead of withdrawing money every day).
I know to use cashpoints abroad your card has to say certain things - are Visa debits acceptable?
