Local Currency

This will be my first visit to Prague and Budapest. Are there any suggestions on how much local currency we might need?

    You might want to read the guidance on the Before You Go, Upon Arrival page for your tour. Some good advice there especially about currency, atms, and credit cards..

    Your biggest expense outside of souvenirs will be meals Tauck doesn't include and it kind of depends on whether you go for inexpensive options or gourmet dining. Outside of meals I can generally get by on $100 in cash for a week or more.

    You don't really need to decide now. Things like tipping your driver at the airport and the hotel staff are included in the tour. When you get to the hotel, talk to the TD or hotel desk staff and find out where the nearest ATM is.
