Means of payment on vacation
Especially on vacation, the question of practical and secure means of payment arises.
Use the various options, preferably with a mix of several alternatives.
Cash on vacation
A large wallet is not only unwieldy, it also attracts the attention of thieves. Even if the money is lost, it can hardly be recovered. Travel insurances usually do not cover the loss. For these reasons, cash should not be the only means of payment, especially during longer stays abroad. However, it is advisable to always have a small amount of local currency in your wallet to pay for coffee or an ice cream.
Within America there are about five million, worldwide about ten million acceptance points where you can conveniently pay with your debit card. However, there may be charges for ATM withdrawals, even within the EU. Before you go on vacation, ask your bank about conditions and cooperation partners abroad. Acceptance of the debit card is relatively low in the USA, for example.
A credit card is a practical companion on vacation. It can be used worldwide for cashless payments. In case of loss, the credit card can be blocked quickly. Due to its worldwide acceptance and the security of payment, a credit card is recommended for every vacationer.
