Charges are not limited to credit cards only, you may get charged while taking out the money from ATM, so it’s better you have lots of money before starting your international travel. There are many cards that do not charge a fee on the international transaction, find out more about these and try to grab one. 

Emergencies

Heath emergency, theft, loss of passport etc, these types of emergencies are very common when you travel abroad, but we never think about it and don’t save money for these situations. So, it’s better to keep some money aside for such emergencies instead of getting worried when they occur.

Forgotten Items

Packing for abroad travel is not easy and if you are planning for a month then the possibilities of forgetting stuff increases.
