Cash, traverlers checks, or ATM card?
Im leaving for a 4 week trip from chicago to california and I was wondering what I should do about money? Bringing a big wad of cash just seems like a bad idea, I dont think travelers checks will be very useful in some of the smaller areas we might pass through and ATM cards will get somewhat costly having to withdrawl cash every few days.
Any ideas as to what I should do?
Hard to find anyplace that...
There are only about two places in the US where cashing travelers checks might be iffy and I really doubt you could find them on a trip from Chicago to California.
We almost exclusively use ATM/debit cards and cash. Typcially we withdraw $200 at a time -- given your time constraints the ATM seems like the best choice.
