Tips & Advice
Carry some cash.
While credit cards are accepted throughout South America, cash is still king when you are absolutely in a bind. While we aren’t saying to be a walking ATM, do have several hundred dollars on you just in case.
Get your paper work straight.
Do make sure everyone has a passport. Do make sure everyone has a visa if applicable. Do check the embassy rules as they are constantly updated. Also, see what items are included in your travel package (insurance, tipping, forms, etc).
Be a smart traveler.
Before heading overseas:
Organize comprehensive travel insurance and check what circumstances and activities are not covered by your policy.
Register your travel and contact details, so someone can contact you in an emergency.
To tip the cabbie, round up. For a typical ride, round up about 5-10 percent. If the cabbie hauls your bags and zips you to the airport to help you catch your flight, you might want to toss in a little more. But if you feel like you’re being driven in circles or otherwise ripped off, skip the tip.
Restaurant tips are more modest in South America than in the U.S. In most places, 10 percent is an acceptable tip. If you eat in a local place tips will be unexpected but highly appreciated
