Money & Currency Exchange
Currency exchange rates fluctuate, so check exchange rates in major daily newspapers from time to time. DO NOT change American dollars into foreign currency except upon arrival in each foreign country. We recommend carrying 50 single dollar bills because they are acceptable in most foreign countries and, in the event of needing small local change, you will not end up with excessive local currency. Money should be exchanged only at banks or by the hotel cashier – they are the only ones authorized to do this. Most of the countries you visit will accept credit cards.
