All experts will tell you, you shouldn’t go abroad without having the country’s valid currency. A lot of expenses can only be dealt with in cash only (taxi, public transit, tours, some restaurants, etc). Also, many businesses will not accept debit or credit cards.
Moreover, if you withdraw money from your debit card while not in your home country, your bank will charge you a much higher rate, on top of charging service fees. Based on a survey, it is advised to bring at least 30% of your budget in currency from the country(ies) to be visited.
