Do not be afraid to start your journey with some money.
After all, a shortage or a limited amount of money always makes you wiggle your brain and get out, come up with income options.
On a trip, make sure you make copies of your bank cards. If VISA is issued to the main account, then order an additional MASTERCARD and vice versa.
As shown by the practice of travel: in Europe (for example, Germany) can not accept VISA for payment, and in Asia (for example, Thailand) – European cards.
Despite this, it is always worthwhile to have a little cash in your wallet: euro for the European Union and dollars for the rest of the world.
Another useful tip, if possible, change some of the currency of the country you are eating. As a rule, it can be done in the central large banks of your city. Well, or at the airports on arrival but with a less favorable rate. And having a local cash you will easily and without loss get to the city center or hotel by taxi metro or bus.
Our journey runs from Europe to Asia, Australia and the United States of America. And if in the latter you can manage non-cash and already contactless payments from bank cards integrated into the smartphone, then in Asia, as before, trust in the physical cache with watermarks.
