When shopping, once the "best price" is quoted, ask if they can do better, if you pay cash... many will to avoid the credit card fee..If you are buying something substantial, you should weigh the savings against the protection of a credit card...always carry some cash for food, tips and souvenirs...

We always take several small bils for tips, etc. along the way. Carrying a lot of cash may not be the best idea. We fidn you can get the same price for credit or cash. If the seller has a cash only policy---what is he trying to hide?
