FOUR RE­DUCE YOUR TRAVEL COSTS AND HAS­SLES

Spin to Win Rodeo - - Competitive Edge -

If your bank de­ducted a $.10 fee ev­ery time you de­posited $1.00, how long would you keep bank­ing there? Not very long — and yet most of us blithely ac­cept the con­ver­sion and con­ve­nience charges that banks and for­eign ex­change booths charge at in­ter­na­tional air­ports. In many cases, these fees can run into dou­ble dig­its, com­ing and go­ing.

With a uni­ver­sally ac­cepted cur­rency like gold, you can skip right by those lines and keep the FX hand from dip­ping into your travel funds. Same goes for in­ter­na­tional pur­chases, like a fish­ing char­ter in Baja or drinks at a Paris bistro; why pay a con­ver­sion sur­charge when you can skip it?
