This is really to people who travel from abroad to the USA for a lengthy period of time, as I am intending to do.
How do you go about funding your trip? I am going for 4 months, and changing all of my pounds into dollars for the whole trip doesn't seem the best way, as I'd constantly have a lot of money on my person, and losing it would obviously put an end to my trip.
What other ways are there? Have people used their English bank cards and just used ATM's? Has this worked out ok, or does the cost at each withdrawal of money make this less than ideal?
Is it possible to open an account with an American bank despite being from the UK and only being in the USA for a short period of time?
Any other ideas/previous experiences?
