Options avoid carrying wad of cash

By Trip Advisor / tripadvisor.com


Question: My friends Alicia and Sarah and I are going to Dublin together in December. We'll be eating out and going to pubs a lot. Should we all chip in an equal amount at the beginning of the trip and have one person carry that cash and pay every bill out of it? That would be easier than splitting every check, and I think in general it will be fair because we all tend to eat and drink the same amount, but no one really wants to carry all that cash in her purse.

Answer: I can definitely see why no one would want to carry a whole vacation's worth of cash. That's just asking to get your pocket picked (though Dublin's safe, in general, this could happen anywhere). I have two ideas. First, you could have everyone chip in small, equal amounts every day or two rather than a big chunk before you leave. Or you could use a single credit or debit card for all the charges. Then the cardholder could add things up when you get home and figure out what each person owes.
