But, to each their own, I sometimes prefer traveling with enough budgets and enjoy the ‘luxury’ as well. Whatever your preference is, here are some universal tips for traveling abroad, so you will know what to prepare for your vacation.

If you somehow lose your wallet, cannot use your card, or there’s no money in the ATM, you will be glad you bring cash.
