    Yes, cash is king for that reason but also because card fraud is rampant. If you must use a card, you should absolutely use a credit card instead of a debit card. If the credit card is hacked, your account is protected. If your debit card is hacked, your bank account can be drained quite quickly -- and it will take time for your bank to investigate and refund the money, leaving you broke until they do.
