How much cash should I carry when travelling abroad?

Rounding it up

  • Cash is still king in many places of the world and, depending on your destination, you’ll likely need to carry some.

  • Consider carrying between $50 and $100 a day on average, but remember that cash can bring fees and thieves along with it.

  • Payment cards often have lower fees and are far easier to carry with you while travelling.
