Is it better to travel to a foreign country with cash or with debit/credit cards?
We advise clients to take a combination of cash and credit card. Bring enough cash in case you run into debit card or credit card problems. Both VISA and MasterCard charge a 2.5% conversion fee on every foreign currency transaction. Plus Visa and MasterCard's foreign exchange rates are generally much higher than at FX Connectors.
