It’s no secret that I use my credit card for as much spending as possible — the spending I would do whether using cash or credit — thanks to the availability of cash back rebates. The spending plan for my upcoming vacation is for me to put just about all of our vacation expenses on the credit card and for my girlfriend to chip in half when the bill comes due. We tend to split things fairly evenly most of the time.
But she is also planning to bring cash to the tune of $300. I might bring $100 but I don’t see too much reason to bring more than that. Carrying around so much cash seems like asking for trouble to me.
How much cash do you take on vacation?
