It’s easy to go overboard on the budget while you’re traveling. If you’re keeping a tight grip on funds, place all of your cash in an envelope. Spend only what’s in there. When you run out, you run out.
Personally I’m not really all that good with the envelope system. I have learned that gift cards work a lot better for me. The downside to purchasing multiple gift cards is each card comes with a $4.95 processing fee.
I recently opened up a travel account with a new bank and I was pleased to learn I can order re loadable cash cards thru them with no fees. Sweeet! Again just like the envelopes, when I spend the money, I’m done.
