71.For about US$50, a cheap, acceptable hotel room can be found in most countries. In some countries, you may
even be able to pay less. If you are traveling on a tight budget, another option is a boarding house. They are
normally found in abundance near bus and railway stations. In some towns with a high number of tourists, it is
common for families to rent rooms to visitors. Both these options are difficult to book in advance. However you
can easily find out about them at the local bus or railway station when you arrive at your destination, if you are
not immediately inundated with offers the minute you step off your bus. Although traveling this way does not
provide the security of knowing exactly where you will next spend the night, it does have the advantage of giving
you an experience with the local culture that most motels and hotels cannot provide.
Good inexpensive hotels can be found in most cities away from the airport, tourist areas, and central business
districts. There are often great seasonal variations in hotel prices at resorts. Remember, cheaper hotels do not
always supply soap, towels, and toilet paper, so carry these items with you. By going online, it’s a simple matter
to find a hotel within your price range in practically any city in the world. Most sites also include customer
reviews, an especially important feature when booking budget-priced accommodations. In addition, most hotels
and motels offer discounts to travelers making their reservations online.

76.Many travelers prefer to buy foreign currency in their own countries before they leave, both for convenience
and as a hedge against possible market fluctuations, but there are other options.
Arriving in a foreign country can be a confusing experience, even for seasoned globe-trotters. By buying your
currency beforehand, you can become acquainted with the value and appearance of the notes and coins, as well as
avoid any exchange commissions applied by foreign banks for the conversion of foreign currency. It is more
convenient to have some local currency with you immediately upon arrival in a foreign country for the inevitable
initial expenses, such as taxis, meals, and tips, as your arrival might not coincide with normal banking hours. As
soon as you arrive, you can be ready to go without wasting time lining up to exchange your money at the airport.
Many modern travelers use automated teller machines (ATMs) to obtain local cash when traveling abroad.
ATMs are easy to use. The machines are familiar, and you can use the same card to access your account as you
use at home. One drawback is the hefty fees charged by both the local bank and your home bank. The fees for
foreign exchange transactions are generally higher than they are for domestic transactions. When you arrive at the
airport, you don’t want to worry about finding the nearest ATM machine and then trying to understand the money
it dispenses. So, while judicious use of ATMs is a good idea when traveling abroad, ATMs don’t preclude the
need to arrive in a foreign country with cash in hand.
