  2. Hello ! First time posting on here . Been an avid reader until now I have a question about currency needs We are sailing on the Q.V. in January 2018 circumnavigation of S America. The itenary is such that we call in at various ports and countries during the 11 weeks , ie ...Bermuda , Dominica , Brazil,, Uruguay, Argentina , Chile , Peru,Jamaica ... to name but some . DH is quite savvy where currencies are concerned and researches best exchange rates months ahead [emoji6] preferring not to rely on the exchange rate on board . My ? Is what do others do please as not knowing how much we are likely to spend / need is difficult to estimate how much to change in advance . I understand US $ is valid most countries but is this for the case for example if we were only making small purchases? Your help and advice is greatly appreciated ! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
