I was wondering how a generic bank credit card compares to something like “Cash Passport”.

I’m planning to go away 5 weeks where 3-4 weeks will be Europe. Majority of the trip will be backpacking, using flights, trains, buses etc. What would you recommend is a good way to manage funds? I was always a bit skeptical about carrying cash but few people seem to do just that. I’d like to know what method will be convenient and would not incur a ton of fees 🙂

Thanks!
