Credit card or cash? How you handle money on a trip depends a lot on where you are headed. While in rural Morocco, for example, you’ll only use a credit card a handful of times (if you are lucky). Most transactions are in actual local currency. On the other hand, I used my credit card pretty much throughout Norway last month, and cash was the exception to the rule. In either case, there are ways to wisely prep for a trip, mind your money, avoid unnecessary fees, and travel like a pro.
