Keeping in contact with family and friends while overseas can be expensive especially on long vacations or study abroad programs.
Washington D.C. (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Visiting Mexico, whether for vacation or for family, can end up being an expensive endeavor. We all deserve a vacation, but it is also always a good idea to be budget conscious. As thoughts of preparation and those long lines at the airport dance through our heads adding to the already high stress levels at work no one has time to sweat the little stuff. However, the little stuff can add up to hundreds of dollars over the course of the vacation, money that could be better spent on souvenirs or a couple extra frozen drinks at the bar. When traveling to another country there are a number of ways to save money that will make the trip smoother and less expensive.
When traveling to Mexico, it is vital to understand the exchange rate in order to keep you within budget. Calculating exchange rates, understanding whether or not your credit cards or bank will charge international withdrawal fees, and understanding local ATM withdrawal fees will help you eye in true cost. Using the current exchange rate, a $100 USD withdrawal will equal $128 MXN, but if your bank rates will only give you $120MXN, the ATM charges you $8MXN, and your bank charges you $12 MXN for an international withdrawal… we find how quickly you can manage to lose nearly 21% of your money before you can even spent it.
Although Mexican custom dictates that tipping is not necessary, we do encourage treating your hostess and drivers well for good service. If you’re really hard up for cash, public transportation is always an option that may lead you to areas of the city you might not have otherwise visited. Some hotels even offer complimentary transportation to and from popular local restaurants so be sure to inquire about your travel options with your concierge before heading out.
Finally, giving your family an affordable way to keep in contact with you during your vacation is important.
