Re: Taking money abroad?
to be honest.
I've always taken a couple of hundred in cash, that covers the airport, a book some food etc, and a few meals out for the first few days, then used the cash point for the rest.
the banks give the same rate for changing money, and charge roughly the same commission as any other bureau du change.
so why bother taking pre-paid plastic, that you could loose, and might not be able to use everywhere or cheques that you could loose, have to get remade etc.
you may as well just take your card. (which you'll probably be taking anyway).
I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
