Money Etiquette Abroad

No matter where you're going, money needs to be handled in a safe and responsible way. Though it may look different than you're used to, it's by no means “monopoly money.” Some countries prefer to use cash and using a card is difficult. Some countries only take cards with chips in them. Do research on your specific country before you go to learn basic information about the host country currency and how it's used.
