To help you out, CurrencyFair has put together this guide to safely taking money abroad. It’s not always a priority in the whirlwind of arranging a wedding, but it’s a crucial step to keeping your money safe on a honeymoon.

Send money online
We don’t have to remind you of the dangers of travelling with large sums of cash. If you do have to cover the costs of accommodation or excursions while you’re out there, it’s safer to do so before you go via online payments.

Many people are dubious about sending money over the internet. However, if you use a reputable company and a secure, stable platform, you can eradicate any problems. Companies such as CurrencyFair offer a quick and easy money exchange process, as well as competitive exchange rates.

Check rates before you travel
You may be tempted to take your bank card with you on your travels. However, what many people don’t realise is that they could incur hefty charges every time they use them.

From foreign usage fees to credit card interest and flat fees, you can end up spending more than you bargain for if you use your card abroad. While these fees are usually just a small sum or percentage, the charges can soon mount up, driving your wedding expenditure even higher.

Avoid this by checking the rates before you travel. If your current card operator is offering high charges, it may be worth taking out a travel-specific card, as these usually offer reduced fees.

Don’t leave exchanging cash to the last minute
Exchanging money at the airport may be convenient, but you run the risk of getting a lower exchange rate. Instead, get your currency sorted in advance.

Shop around before you go to make sure you secure the best rates. has a handy travel money comparison tool, helping you find the best rate online without trawling from shop to shop.
