I'm still waiting patiently in the queue :3 but I've been reading up on things and I see one issue.
I'm flying to Cambodia/Vietnam for 3-4 weeks with my parents sometime this year. I'm organising this and I will be in charge of any cash, because I speak English, my parents do not (they speak German and Russian instead, but I highly doubt it will be very useful in Cam/Viet).
TL;DR, I'm going to keep my own and my parents money, maybe excluding some ICE reserves in socks that my parents will keep .
Problem: monthly ATM withdrawal limit is £1000.
Surely, we'll pay for some stuffs directly with card, although it's not my preferred option at all.
I'd rather pay with cash whenever I can without taking card out of my wallet. This means higher ATM withdrawals and for 3 people, I expect to exceed £1000 limit.
Ha Long bay trip is about $140 per person, so x3 and in GBP, that's £346... so that trip alone is a third of monthly limit. Angkor Wat admission fee is 3x $40 (or more, they are thinking about price increase), so another £100.
Even if I thought about my own expenditures (excluding flights, but pretty much everything else), for 4 week trip, I'd be afraid I might exceed ATM withdrawal limit.
Any tips? Anything I'm missing?
Tbh, annual ATM withdrawal limit is not the biggest either, I'm assuming this includes UK ATM withdrawals as well?
Parents can't have their own Monzo, because they are not UK residents.
