that sounds like a plan too thanks
And try to pay cash. If they have a card, you run the risk of charges turning up unexpectedly.

What do you mean? If you mean in general i personally find the Halifax clarify card is way to go as you don't get charges for paying in other currencies....and mastercard is generally about best exchange rate you can get... Right enough if you withdraw cash you do get charged daily interest unless u pay off in full straight away.. So we each have a card one used for purchases and one used for cash that we use Internet banking to pay off straight away to avoid interest

Im there a month and its more for calls within the usa to US numbers like at the airport to get my shuttle or taxi etc... (guess id phone/text my friends there more too if i could rather than rely on wifi like i did last time) so think as 3 is £1.40 a min to phone US numbers while there it best i go with the Lyca suggestion unless anyone knows a better one

So what ive learned today is the lyca sim mentioned above for around £12 on amazon.com more if you want one sent to a uk address (im lucky my friend will forward mine here as ill need it a couple of days before i will be seeing her) gives me 30 days Unlimited Nationwide Talk, Text & Data 1 GB at up to 4G LTE $1.50 Bonus International Credit Unlimited Talk & Text to 60+ Countries. It's 1c a min to uk landline and 5c a min mobiles but tbh i am less likely to need that and more likely to need the US airtime and data


the 3 sims good for calling/texting home that comes out of your allowance... but says 1.40 a min to phone a us number and 2p a text... three.co.uk/sup…tes

Just top up and it lasts till it runs out . Dont get a bundle they only last 30 days . I think you have to top up £15 .

Don't use an English SIM to phone USA numbers it will cost £2 a minute . Use uber on the app a lot cheaper than yellow cabs . They rip you off especially them Haitian drivers . Use code : uberfreebieue to get a free ride on your first journey . Uber are around half price .
