Always Traveling Without Cash? Here’s Why You Should Stop

Some people enjoy traveling without cash because it gives them a false sense of security. You can’t have your money stolen and lost if you don’t have any in the first place, but cash-less trips are riskier than you think and here’s why you should give them a pass.

Card Troubles

Relying solely on your card is a risky business. You should always have it by your side, but a little bit of cash can come in handy if you end up losing it, reaching your daily limit, or having card troubles of any kind, because that’s also a possibility.

Local Stores

There are certain places where you simply have to pay with cash. It’s highly unlikely you’ll be able to pay souvenirs and street food at local markets with a card, and even if that’s the case, it’s possible they’ll charge you a fee for this payment method.

Safe Place

Traveling with cash doesn’t necessarily mean you should be walking around with a huge sum of money. Take only what you need for the day, and leave the rest in your safe or locker, in case something unexpected happens along the way.
