Once you’ve decided now’s the time for your dream trip to New Zealand, there are a few logistics you need to figure out, like what’s the best way to access your money and pay for things?
What’s the best way to access your cash to buy things like meals, activities and souvenirs? When should you use a Debit Card? When is a Credit Card best? Which Credit Cards are best for travelling in New Zealand with? And how do you minimize the fees you pay to withdraw cash while you’re travelling?
This blogpost is from your friends at MoaTrek to help you work out the best way to carry and use money safely and affordably on your big trip to New Zealand. We’ve been showing overseas travellers all our favourite holiday spots on our small group tours since 1971 and since then times sure have changed (remember travellers’ cheques?) when it comes to safely travelling with money and paying for things and we’ve heard from lots of guests over the years about what works best.
We’ve also canvassed some of recent travellers from one of our tours to ask their top tips for travelling with money and paying for things.
