Preparing Your CASH While On Vacation

Start with a vacation budget plan and check with your bank on the fees for using your ATM card on foreign land.

You can’t always plan for when you’re going to spend money just like you can’t plan for all the little shops you would see along the way. It’s particularly common for tourist to come across something they want at a local small shop, only to then discover, they don’t have enough cash on hand to make the purchase. When planning your spending, don’t forget to always carry something extra. It’s better to have a little bit more just in case, than not enough.
