    Cash or credit cards?

    The local currency is the French Pacific Franc. There are plenty of ATMs so just withdraw some local currency. Lots of businesses accept US dollars but pay a poor rate of exchange.

    Current travel alerts for travel to Turkey

    There are warnings about not going within 50 kms of the Syrian border due to the conflict there. Also occasionally there's an incident in Istanbul - small explosions - but they're usually targeted at police stations and government buildings. No need to be put off totally, but do keep a high level of alertness when you're there. about 1 month ago

    It's the end of rainy and cyclone season. http://www.worldnomads.com/travel-safety/Fiji/63164/Wet-and-Wild-in-Fiji-Cyclone-Safety But I have personally been there in March.

    Is it safe to travel to Egypt in mid to late February 2015?

    Have a look at a previous answer I provided. http://answers.worldnomads.com/questions/egypt/3387/what-is-the-safety-in-cairo-if-i-want-to-visit-pyramids If you're sticking to popular tourist spots it's more than likely going to be ok. Although note that there were some car bombs in Alexandria a week or two back. The place is still volatile and unpredictable. Stay well away from any protests or public gatherings. about 1 month ago
