In terms of spending/money on such trips what do you find works best?? only so much cash you really wanna take with you on long trips...travellers cheques easily cashed in hotels/casinos??? debit cards at atm's have fee's im guessing,the rate for sterling to dollars is crap also. what about a post office type money card,top it up and use it when u can and have additional cash for tipping/gambling etc??

This topic has been closed for a bit but im sure i will get the necessary help im after....heading to vegas now in a few weeks with the wife,neither of us have ever been,wondering what would people recommend we see or do...is it best to book tickets in advance for shows? the grand canyon helicopter ride? Or just ask at reception for help with it all. Any particular tour operator for package i should go for regards the helicopter tour,seems to be endless options online

feel free to shoot out other ideas...restaurants,bars,attractions,golf courses  :P :-* if she would let me,would prefer to have a rough idea of what we are going to do each day

Where did you go for the custom fit? Andrew Morris or American golf I guess would be the two options.thinking about getting new gear,using second hand clubs I bought off a friend,grips are silky smooth,need either regrouped or new clubs bought.played yesterday,37 points with two dings,might try sneak in a few evening holes this week

Anyone been to the Maldives may/June time or anything during the 'rainy/wet' season,going by google they happen often enough but pass quickly and it's still always warm. Are they annoying enough to put you off going back during that period??
