I will bring my main credit card and at least one backup card.
On any given day I have between $100 and $300 in cash on me. (Old habit from before credit cards were everywhere. A habit I am not likely to break at any time).
I always let my cards know when I am going to be traveling (personal or business). This again is a old habit that I am not likely to break any time soon.
Hope it helps.
so what you're saying is unless you are 100% sure there's an ATM of the same branch, you won't bring your debit card. last year in Chicago it was just me and Mom. before I left I signed up for the 5% back on restaurants, went the same time of year March 21 thru March 26th. so even though I had my debit card, we didn't go to any fast food restaurants, we ate in affordable places, I used my Discover in Chicago.
this is a new year in Sarasota I hope there are TD Banks. I would rather get some cash that way, then bring a lot of money the way we use to do things back in the old days.
sticf you travel a lot when you are with employees or family members do you ever have a problem when leaving houston going to a different place, going through there terminal, waiting around for either taxis or hotel buses. have you ever had anybody trying to steal from you or anybody with you?
It could also be on the streets depending upon the location whether it be business or vacation.
