Before you leave on your trip
Leave copies of your itinerary, passport and visas with family and friends so that you can be contacted in case of emergency.
Take at least $100 to $300 worth of currency for your initial destination so you can pay for taxi, tips, food, etc. Also keep some cash for your departure to pay potential exit fees. Ask for some of your currency in small denominations ($5-$10) for cabs and food vendors that might not accept large bills.
Check your overseas medical insurance coverage. Ask your medical insurance company if your policy applies overseas, and if it covers emergency expenses such as medical evacuation. If it does not, consider supplemental insurance.

Whenever possible, only use ATMs that are inside of your hotel or other reputable business.
Make sure nobody watches you as you enter your PIN.
Do not count your cash while standing at an ATM.
Do not wear conspicuous clothing or jewelry while traveling or carry excessive amounts of money. Also do not leave unattended luggage in public areas or accept packages from strangers.
