What is the best way for the kids to take spending money?
We recommend getting a credit card that can be used to get cash from an ATM, but with parents’ ability to monitor transactions (and cancel in the event of a lost card) from home. Visa Buxx is fine. Many banks offer a DEBIT card on your checking account that will work in the ATMs. AAA also has a prepaid card that works well.
Important note: You MUST contact your bank and/or card company so they’ll know the dates & countries on the Tour. That way, they won’t deny the transaction which they might think is “suspicious” if transactions are seen in Germany then Austria only a few hours later.
