Money Options for Teenager traveling to Italy and Greece on school trip.

Jump to last reply

Was hoping to get some suggestions from the seasoned travelers on this board. My 17 year old daughter will be traveling to Europe (Italy and Greece) in the next few weeks. We have gotten her some Euros and she will be bringing a credit card (with her name on it) for emergencies. I am told that travelers cheques are "old school" and no longer used. What then are the the best options? She does not have an ATM card, and I don't want her taking all cash for fear that it will all get stolen with no chance for recoupment. Should I send her with one of those Visa Gift cards? And if so, are those widely accepted? Can she take it to the bank and get euros like she would with ATM card? Can the money on the gift card be replaced if it is stolen? Better ideas? Thanks in advance.
