2013 - buying bikes in PP

Postby Nata Harli » Sun Nov 11, 2012 2:44 pm

Kind of curious about how we (or more specifically I) will be paying for the bike purchased in PP.

Will we be able to use a credit/debit card or will we have to have cash? My plan is to have enough money in my bank account to cover my costs and use my debit card at ATMs for my periodic expenses. I think I have a daily limit of $200 so getting enough cash might pose a problem. I'm hoping we will be able to use plastic.

What did you guys use last year? Plastic or cash?

Was just about to ask similar. Cash isn't really an issue for me but carrying it is. I think my daily limit for ATM withdrawals is $300 so wanna plan ahead.

You can also check with your bank and raise your ATM limit before the trip. I think I can raise mine (Wells Fargo) to $600 a day (of course, got to have the moola there! :D )

buying the bike is definately a cash only affair. they dont even have electricity, so dont expect to pay with a card!! We all brought about a thousand in cash with us, which is enough to buy the bike, do a little work on it, and most likely live for a week or more depending on your preferences.

if you're not comfy carrying that much cash, then just make sure you have at least 6-700 on you to buy it on monday morning. that will cover the bike and some small repairs and mods before we leave. there are lots of reliable atm's in PP, which will give you $500 at a time (if your bank approves it).

I raised the daily limit on my Visa to $500, quick call to the bank took care of it.
