Travelling overseas is an exciting experience, but it can also be daunting, especially when it comes to managing your finances.
Here are a few tips on how to spend money overseas and get the most out of your budget:
Do your research.
Before you travel, take some time to research the local currency and exchange rates. This will help you get a sense of the value of your money and avoid getting ripped off.
Use a travel money card.
Travel money cards, like Yondr, offer bank-beating exchange rates and no foreign transaction fees. This can save you a significant amount of money, especially if you're travelling for an extended period of time.
Be mindful of your spending habits.
It's easy to overspend when you're travelling, so it's important to be mindful of your spending habits. Set a budget and stick to it as much as possible.
Take advantage of free activities.
There are many free activities to enjoy in most cities around the world. Do some research online to find out what's available.
Bartering is a great way to save money on souvenirs and other small purchases. Be prepared to walk away if you're not happy with the price.
