In two months me and a friend are going on vacation in a different state. One of her coworkers went and used their card (not sure if it was debit or credit) and got their identity stolen. Usually I am a cash only person, but my friend says we might need between $500-$1000 each. I don't think it'd be safe to have that much money on us, especially since if something happens we won't have money for gas for the way home.
So I was thinking of getting either one of those temporary prepaid cards (they don't have a name attached, I don't think) or a Visa giftcard and put half of my money on one of those and carry the other half in cash. Or get two gift cards and just keep enough cash to pay for my half of the room and gas. What do you think? Any better ideas?
