Questions for S America trip from parent

Hi,

I am the parent of Eoin Schnell who will be on the trip for S America Group C. I have several questions.

1.As to the spending money. I saw you suggest $50-75 a week and that using an ATM is possible. How much cash should be given  to start(how many weeks)?

2.Can he use a passport ID card (its separate from passport) instead of International student ID. He has no drivers license or school ID.

3. Does the daypack – 35 L have to fit inside the 70-75 L  main pack?

4. He normally uses an electric razor. I am assuming he should not bring this, but it’s pretty lightweight and keeps a charge.

All for now and thanks,

Moira
