Tip 10: how to manage travel money 💰 💸 We still have a few tips left on how to deal with money abroad to enjoy your adventure the most 🤩
💵Let’s start with tipping - in many countries, it’s an essential part of every day life. In countries like Egypt or Morocco, every service requires a tip - make sure you have some local coins or small notes to tip around 🤝
💳 On to safety: we highly recommend to take an “emergency” card with you with enough money for, say, a ticket back home. That way, you’ll make sure nothing can spoil your trip 🛫
💷 Carry only as much cash as you need with you - and keep the rest in the hotel safe or other secure place 🧰
💶 Finally, the best part: spending 🤑 We recently came across @monzo - if you are living in UK, it might be worth checking them out! Unlike more conventional banks, they offer free payments and up to £200 cash withdrawals a month abroad. We haven’t tried them yet on a road, but a few friends of ours are using Monzo while travelling 🧳
🛍 And one last thing: if your local currency is more expensive than the destination money, and you’re travelling to a place where you can haggle (like a bazaar), it might be worth negotiating a price in local money and pay in cash - otherwise, they might round it up to a full dollar or pound 💷 ❓Do you have any questions left on travel money?
