Know your Onions
No, we are not talking about a purchase you may make from a farmer, instead we are talking about knowing the value of money.
Look to pack a pocket conversion table, or at the very least have a system worked out to help you calculate approximate values – that ornamental plate may look lovely, but at three times the price you'd pay back home is it really worth it?!?
Likewise, try to familiarise yourself with your host nation's currency asap – it’s funny how notes often look alike and unless you ‘know your onions’ you could easily end up tipping over the odds for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake!
Holidaymakers often become slapdash abroad with their honeymoon money and sometimes seem to be of the opinion that crime only occurs back home – if only this was the case, more of us would move abroad!
You must be as careful with your money whilst on honeymoon as you would with cash with money as you would at home – keep purses, handbags and wallets accessible, but to you only.
On the same front, Travellers Cheques are a far safer method of taking spending money away than simple foreign currency (if lost are stolen they can often be replaced within 24 hours) and for that small amount of hassle when you need to cash them in, it is probably worth it.
