Foreign Currency

Pay like a local when you experience the local scene

Foreign currency is usually not on a traveler’s mind when planning a trip and is often done last minute. Paying in local cash when traveling internationally is common for many small transactions such as tips, taxi fare, cafes, shopping in markets, and provides an always available backup to credit cards. Many vendors even prefer cash since credit card processing fees cut into their profit and are more willing to negotiate. Make sure you’re always ready to pay with foreign currency.

Check off the last box before your international travels
