Throw Your Money Away? No Way...
You know those tiny expenses, like pesky ATM fees or foreign transaction fees?
Do you pay them and pay them? When you get home and look at your bank statement are you surprised how they added up?
Any more there are plenty of banks and credit cards that do not charge a foreign transaction fee or charge to use your credit card oversees. If you need to use an ATM to get cash, try to use it as infrequently as possible to avoid adding fees on top of fees.
When you're accessing an ATM, check to see who is watching you. If you're traveling with someone, ask them to stand behind you and watch others nearby. No sense letting someone take your money once you retrieve it from the ATM.
