Prepare to Handle Money Overseas

Foreign Currency

  • Check and understand the exchange rate before you travel.
  • Before you leave, notify your bank, credit card company, or other financial institutions that you are going overseas.
  • Avoid carrying cash and consider using traveler’s checks or major credit cards instead (but make sure they are accepted at your destination before departing on your trip).
  • Change traveler’s checks only as you need them.
  • Do not flash large amounts of money when paying a bill.
