To you travelers......

I need some advice. I'm going to my convention for 3 days as most of you know. Then going over to Canada for a few days. I have a budget I want to spend. I don't want to take my debit card because I don't want it mixed up with bill money and I might go over my budget. I don't think it's safe or practical to take all cash. Any suggestions?

I'd go with one of those pre paid visa cards or travelers checks. Hope you have fun!

Travelers checks sound good to me if people still really use them.  I have no clue.

The prepaid debit card sounds like a better idea to me.

You could also take your bill money out, leave it at home, and just leave what you plan to spend on the trip in the bank.

 Many places do not take travels checks anymore. My bank doesn't even issue them. Why not try a prepaid card if you're afraid of going over your budget, or just allot yourself a certain amount to use each day.
