"Among the biggest challenges for travelers
and expatriates is managing their finances while
traveling or living abroad as well as maximizing
the value of their currency. Travelers and expats
have to deal with the ever-changing exchange rates,
and different fees and commissions charged by exchange
houses and banks.
In addition, economists predict that the U.S. dollar
will remain low against the world’s major
currencies for several years to come. Such an economic
envonment makes it even more important to wisely
manage your funds while traveling and your finances
back home when living abroad.
The featured articles and listed resources provide
a variety of financial tools to help you get the
most out of your travel and living budget. We have
included resources for sending money abroad, as
well as websites that provide updated exchange
rates for currencies worldwide. In addition you
will find links to ATM locators worldwide for the
most popular credit cards." —Living
