First things first; you need Travel Insurance. You simply can't afford to travel without it and the benefit of purchasing travel insurance is your own peace of mind.
You’ll also need a safe and compact way to access and carry your money while you travel. You can grab a prepaid Multi-Currency Cash Passport from Student Flights that will let you load up to 7 currencies onto one card. Withdraw your money in the local currency from any MasterCard ATM around the world or use your Cash Passport wherever MasterCard is accepted worldwide and online.
If you're currently planning an upcoming holiday, we highly recommend jumping on over to the Destination Guides for a range of information about visa's and passports, health, airports, climate, attractions and other useful stuff! Being connected while you're travelling is priceless for those times you're missing loved ones back home, so be sure to check out our Mobile & SIM options.
