Well i cant believe my trip is only 3 weeks away! Time has flown and now i am starting to worry about how to carry my money around, and what forms of payment to take!
I am starting off in Thailand, then going to be travelling around Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, then back to Thailand (approx 3 months) and then on to Australia.
Im really confused as to what is the best way to carry money around, i really dont want to risk losing it all after saving so hard for it!
I was thinking of the following:
Nationwide cash card - for cash withdrawals
Abbey debit card - for online purchases such as hostels as there will be a charge on withdrawals or other card transactions
Virgin credit card - for online purchases (poss in place of debit card) and emergencies as this will also have a charge on withdrawals or other card transactions
And then I will also carry some cash on me but minimal amounts only, and this includes some US dollars for use in Laos/Cambodia.
I was also thinking of using a bank account that i have no card access to while away, only online access, which will hold most of my funds and i will use that to feed the other cards, while keeping the amount of money in the other accounts at a minimum in case of loss/theft.
Sorry for the long-winded email but i would really appreciate any tips or advice on this, i am sooo confused at the moment!!!! but equally very excited!!!
Thanks in advance!
