Exploring Money, Etc. for the South Pacific Traveler


Traveler’s checks in U.S. money are recommended. In the South Pacific, American Express is the most efficient company to use for refunds for lost checks. Also bring along a small amount of $1s and $5s. The total amount of money you’ll bring will depend on your country of choice, the amount of time spent there, and the activities you plan to do. If you have a car at home, bring along a copy of your car insurance information. It will help you when renting cars abroad. Also remember that most credit cards offer car rental insurance. Check yours before leaving home. Some other items you’ll need

  • Passport
  • Vaccination certificates
  • Airline tickets
  • Driver’s license
  • Scuba certification card
  • Traveler’s checks
  • Cash
  • Money belt or other device
  • Address book
  • Notebook
  • Envelopes
  • Extra ballpoint pens
  • Photocopies of all original documents
