We are leaving on Wednesday for London (5 days) then Paris (5 days). I need to go into the bank to get some currency, but I dont know how much to get!
We have called the cc companies and our bank (with our debit card) and they know we're traveling and can use them overseas, no trouble - for credit purchase or ATMs.
We prefer not to travel with too much cash on hand for obvious reasons, but I know we need some. I just dont know how much!
Can anybody give us some recommendations on what you have done or would do? Should we get just pounds or get some Euros too for Paris?
Also - I have an over the shoulder purse (its a messenger style purse) thats not huge, I can wear it under my coat and its big enough to carry my 'stuff' but not so big... will that suffice for safety purposes?
Thanks for your input!!
