Best way to carry money on a travel

English Speaking Topic

What’s the best way for travellers to carry money in your country?

In this lesson, you will learn to use Present Perfect and Past Tense.

Alex is going to Canada, and wants to know the best way to take money. Listen. What advice does Mark give her?

Alex Mark, have you ever been to Canada?
Mark Yeah, a few times. I went on a work trip to Toronto last year. Why?
Alex Well, I need your advice. I’m spending three weeks on holiday there next month, and I’m not sure about the best way to take money.
Mark I’ve always taken credit cards – you can use them everywhere, and you don’t need to carry cash around.
Alex Have you ever lost them?
Mark Only once. I left my wallet on a table in a restaurant, and luckily the manager phoned my hotel.
Alex And what about traveller’s cheques?
Mark I haven’t used them for years. They’re OK, and most hotels will change them, but you pay commission when you buy them, it’s about 3% …
Alex True. Yeah, it sounds as if credit cards would be best.
Mark Definitely. And maybe some cash, a few hundred dollars, for taxis and things …
Alex OK, well, thanks for the advice.
Mark That’s OK – have a good trip.
