How much money do you need to travel for a month?
The amount is going to vary wildly depending on where you want to travel, and how thrifty you are. But for long-term budget travel, I usually recommend planning to spend at least $1500 per month.
How much cash should I carry while Travelling?
Inform your bank and credit card company that you will be traveling. I usually take some US $50 or $100 bills for emergency use. The amount depends on the length of the trip. $200 should be plenty for a short trip. The same as other people, I carry about $200 (equivalent) and use my cc.
