Hi there

I am off to travel Eastern Europe on Monday (from Poland + southwards) for 3 months and really need some advice on how to carry your money?

As in:

Use debit/credit card?
Travellers Cheques?
change up money before I go in Dollars / Euros / or local currencies??

Any help will be massively appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi Will,
I can help you as far Poland is concerned.I think good idea is to change up money in local currency(Polish zloty),but I think you should do this in Poland it will be more pay.You can do it in exchange office,which is in each town.
If you habe got more quesions about Poland,write me it and I'll try to answer you.

I recommed using ATMs when arriving BUT keep a stash hidden soemwhere...and Trav Cheques are great too in emergencies. As my friend found out when his ATM was eaten by a bank machine in Poland!
