Will carrying a forex card be a better option than carrying cash on my trip to USA?
If you are travelling to the United States, you must carry the majority of your currency in the form of a forex card. Forex cards are widely regarded as the most secure method of carrying foreign currency. They are similar to prepaid VISA/ Mastercard cards in that they can contain a single currency or multiple currencies. It is recommended that you carry 70% of your total amount in a forex card and the remaining 30% in cash, which can be used to pay for small expenses.
