Cash vs. card? How should I prepare for the travel expenses?

Methods to prepare travel expenses include local currency, check cards to withdraw local currency, credit cards, and traveler’s checks. Traveler’s checks, once a necessity for overseas travel, have now been discontinued due to the number of users continuously decreasing.

Cash and Card Ratio

The euro is a major currency, and you can exchange it with exchange rate preferential treatment through Internet exchange in the smartphone app of the Korea Exchange Bank. The ratio of cash and cards is recommended to be around 30:70, but there are many check cards that can be used conveniently without any fee, so many travelers only carry emergency money. It is recommended that you prepare a cash card that can withdraw local currency locally + a credit card that can be used to pay large amounts of money at hotels, travel agencies, and a backup credit cards or cash cards.

It is not recommended to use a check card when purchasing an item. Unlike credit cards, money is withdrawn from the bank account immediately when used, so it is difficult to make up for the loss even if fraudulent use occurs.

Precautions when using ATM

Most ATMs in Europe can use English. When withdrawing cash with a cash card, it is better to use an ATM outside the bank during bank business hours, but if the card is returned from the ATM, it is easy to ask for help from the employee. If you try to withdraw cash and you can’t withdraw cash, you may have exceeded the withdrawal limit, so it’s better to lower the amount and try again. If you continue to have problems, it may be a network problem, so it is recommended that you use another ATM or try again in a few hours.

It is not recommended to use ATMs operated by Travelex, Euronet, Moneybox, Your Cash, Cardpoint, and Cashzoned, not banks. These ATMs are expensive, unsafe, and charge higher fees by inducing “Dynamic Current Conversion.” The Dynamic Current Conversion is subject to multiple currencies in euros => dollars => won, making the fee more expensive. If you see “Conversion” when using ATM, you must select “Without Conversion”.

If you can see loose or broken parts of the ATM when you withdraw cash from the ATM, you should not use it because a card replica may have been installed. And it is recommended to cover the keypad with the other hand when entering the password. If your card is lost or stolen, you should call the card company’s call center and report it as lost or stolen, and if you use it illegally, you need to issue a “Police Report” from the local police to reduce the damage.

Currency exchange

It’s better not to exchange money as much as possible because the exchange rate in Europe is not good. Most banks do not exchange money, and you can exchange money at train stations or airports.
