Hi

I would like to know if the expression "Spending money" is normal and OK!

E.g, She did not provide us with any spending money!

Hi,

'Spending money' is usually used to describe money you need on holiday in addition to your travel costs. Sometimes you see competitions where the winner will receive travel to wherever/hotel accommodation and a certain sum of money referred to as 'spending money'.
