We hope you are getting excited for your upcoming trips!
It is always handy to have a certain amount of local currency with you when you arrive. E.g. USD for USA or GBP for United Kingdom.We also recommend you have around €100 in cash for your Europe trip before departure and the equivalent of around €30 into Swiss Francs.
If your trip goes through countries such as Croatia, Hungary etc your Trip Leader will advise you what best way to handle your money, though generally you have 2 options:
- Have some Euro cash on you and exchange it once you get to the new country; or
- Withdraw the money directly from an ATM as it will issue you with the local currency.
Travel Cards are very handy to travel with as generally they provide you with 2 cards (one main one and a back up one) and are accepted in many places. You can get these generally from Banks, Travel Agencies or post offices.
Generally Travel Cards do not have the Bali currency option on it. So you are best on having some local currency with you when you arrive and just do a withdrawal once there or change any spare currency (notes only) into the Indonesian Rupiah at the Depensar airport
We hope you have a great time travelling around
